Introducing Leah Yard Designs

The success of Fino Lino has been an accumulation of creative forces and nothing has been more important than the combined talent of our customer service design team - each bringing their unique talents to a business model that celebrates talent, creativity and individual passion. We are delighted to showcase the talent of Leah Yard who joined our team 2 years ago. Her unique eye for colour and texture has been transforming many homes and now Fino Lino is proud to present Leah's jewellery.
Lauren



Each original item is meticulously hand made by Jewellery Designer Leah Yard in Vancouver, using gemstones, fresh-water pearls, Vermeil, 14 karat Gold-Fill, Sterling Silver and Rose Gold.  Leah has been designing and making jewellery for over ten years,  and more recently has begun to expand her metalwork skills to integrate more detail in the framework of her pieces. This skill is reflected in the current designs which have been cut, filed, formed, hammered and polished by hand.



 
The luster of Fresh Water Pearls adds such a beautiful softness to the warmth of gold, making them one of Leah's favourite elements to work with.



Leah is inspired mostly by colour.  It can be bold and powerful to make a statement, or bring someone closer with softness and subtle tones.  She loves the glamour that these precious stones and metal elements bring to the collection; always anticipating the  joy of how each piece will be worn, either dressed up for a special event or in combination with blue jeans and a simple top.


Regal jewel tones make a dramatic impact in this pair of bold chandelier earrings

One of Leah's favourite bracelets; combining  faceted Ruby ovals with hand formed 14 Karat Gold Filled findings.




Dramatic statement necklace with Golden Citrine dropped from a Sterling Silver lattice.


Mixed metals add another dynamic to this industrial pair of Smokey Quartz earrings.


Drops of Golden Citrine,  Pink Amethyst, Ametrine, and Fresh Water Pearls layered in with brushed and flat cable chain create a beautiful soft palette in this multi-strand necklace.



Glorious Red Garnet drops dangle from a 14 Karat Gold Filled filigree chandelier frame



Brushed Vermeil and Sterling Silver chain add interest with another texture to this classic pearl bracelet


I am honored to have my work showcased at Fino Lino as I feel there is no better place that celebrates beauty. 
-Leah
