I am Nedda, the artist and designer of Enchanted Leaves Jewelry. Enchanted Leaves is run by me, with a little help from my husband Aaron.
I create nature jewelry with organic materials I've gathered in the forests throughout California. I use a creative process called electroforming, which uses chemistry and electricity to transform designs into metal. My unique nature designs are blended with a diverse range of media including gemstones, crystals, glass, various metals, wood, ceramic, and sculpted polymer clay.
I offer my unique and creative jewelry designs to local customers through independent design and craft festivals, and I also have clients that feature my designs in shops around the USA and in countries around the world.
