Lee Downey Collection
Lee Downey, a native of California, has been making jewelry for more than 35 years. He got his start as a silversmith in the Arizona turquoise trade, where a lifelong passion for precious stones would be born. Downey’s style is wonderfully unique, evoking consideration of his ancient materials' multi-dimensional meanings and reflecting both his Western upbringing and living immersion in Eastern culture (Downey's full-time home & production studio is based in Bali, and the island’s verdant color and deep spirituality permeate his work).
The hope is that these bits and pieces of art…will survive into the far future, heirlooms and treasures that are built to endure the long haul of time and the rewards of real beauty.
