About the event

You're invited! Please join us for a wine and cheese welcoming reception for the very talented Lesley Aine McKeown from Prescott, Arizona. Get to know the artist, see her beautiful work and mingle with other students, shop her gorgeous jewelry and tour the studio. Non-students welcome! Wine and cheese reception provided.

“Creating is a process constantly in motion, one that keeps the maker searching for balance. I hope to create work that provokes thought. Bordering between sculpture and jewelry each is thoughtful in design and construction representing a meaning deeper than aesthetics.”

Using low-tech traditional metal smithing techniques and tools, each piece is created in Lesley’s studio in the tradition of the American Studio Art Jewelry movement of the 1940’s through the 60’s, which dictates that the work is created entirely in the artist’s studio. Her work is hand fabricated in precious metals, sterling, high carat gold, designer cabochons and gemstones.


Creating jewelry since 1984, Lesley is the daughter of two professional artists. An artistically rich environment that molded her vision and ethic. Lesley's jewelry reflects a dedication to excellence in craft and attention to narrative. Each piece is unique with the intent to evoke conversation and represent the wearers personal expression. Lesley is currently exploring deep sculptural constructions with a botanical narrative.

Lesley lives and works in the high desert mountains of northern Arizona.
