Leyla Abdollahi graduated with a BA in Jewellery Design from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design after studying fine art in Iran and working in the fashion industry. She later enrolled in a gemmology course, where she further developed her passion in gemstones. Since then, she has been creating jewellery on commissions for private clients and companies in the UK and abroad, as well as bringing out her own collections handcrafted in gold and vibrant gemstones. Right from the early days, her exquisite designs have caught the attention of many and won a number of awards. Her work has also been published in several magazines and exhibited in Britain and abroad. She is passionate about her work and eager to take on new challenges in order to bring her artistic expression to life for many to enjoy. Her passion extends beyond her own creations. Hence, in 2009, she was invited to join Urban Life magazine as their Jewellery Editor, having played an instrumental part in creating and developing this feature. Within this role, she seeks to champion up and coming jewellery designers, as well as to work alongside the established brands. The understanding of fashion and jewellery gained from this background comes together with Eastern and Western influences transforming into primarily conceptual and one of a kind jewels. They are truly appreciated by those who feel pure joy from allowing works of art to accompany them wherever they may be. They are loved by their wearers, since it is them who benefit from experiencing these rare and matchless creations and their ability to provoke both visual pleasure and sense of touch. Thus, objects that have a sentimental value are translated into pieces that will last forever.
