Santa Fe Artist: Leslie Ossentjuk
In high school, Leslie Ossentjuk was introduced to silversmithing techniques, and her penchant for working in small detail was reinforced by hours of contented benchwork. Eventually, after majoring in Studio Art in college, she attained certification as a diamond expert from the Gemological Institute. Soon, Leslie was designing jewelry in Beverly Hills and North Hollywood. She learned intuitively to match designs with a client’s taste. Working to scale, drawing each facet and prong came naturally. For her, there is an undeniable attraction to achieving meticulous detail when it comes to creating jewelry and art.
