Hello! My name is Leha, and I am the artist for The Greene Bead. I specialize in wire wrapped and polymer clay jewelry, and I create miniature (indoor) fairy gardens. I try to use as much naturally derived product as I can, including all genuine gemstones, mined locally here in Wisconsin, Illinois and from around the world. Some of my pieces even include upcycled items such as vintage beads, crystals and buttons!
My journey began back in 2010 as a way to create new jewelry for myself, a broke college kid, by taking apart jewelry I already owned and piecing it back together to create new items. One of my roommates at the time saw what I was doing and asked me to create a few pieces for him, and that's how this all started!
After many years of practice and improvement (I'm still improving everyday!), I've come to the point in my journey where I can start giving back. I've created many pieces to be used in silent auctions to raise money for my high school, my hometown library, benefits for friends and family to help with medical bills, and even Parkinson's research.
Last, but certainly not least, it is my personal goal to make sure each and every item I create for you is completely unique and that you are 100% satisfied with your order. Please feel free to message me with any questions, comments or concerns! I wish you all the best in your endeavors to find that perfect gift for yourself or someone you love.
