Leoma Drew

Biography

Leoma's Jewellery has evolved from a fine art background. An exploration into memory and nostalgia led her to abstract emotional journey's through creating motifs; that became a cryptic symbology to depict personal event's within Leoma's life. As her work progressed and developed the butterfly became a predominant symbol that kept presenting itself. The exploration of the butterfly's shape and form led to small hand crafted sculptural outcomes that would later become Leoma's signature style within her Jewellery practice.

The world can seem black and white at times, fragile, harsh and beautiful.themes run deep and present themselves through Leoma's designs; generating a contrast between pierced silhouetted motifs combined with form. Leoma invites flashes of colour by introducing uniquely cut stones that present an anomaly that deviates from the form. The Irregularity and variations of the stones enhance the experience of Leoma's jewellery which intensifies the intimacy that exists between object and body.
