Leighelena For native Texan and current Austinite, Leigh Elena Navarro, pursuing the art of crafting jewellery has been more than just a career goal; it has been a lifetime in the making. Originally from El Paso, Leigh began learning the processes for fusing enamel and glass together at the young age of five from her mother Susan, a talented enamellist herself. Throughout her childhood Leigh would excitedly accompany her mother on trips to art fairs where she was inspired by Susan's large enamel wall hangings. It was this appreciation of talent for handcrafted art combined with a natural entrepreneurial flair that convinced Leigh's mother to allow her to start making and selling jewellery with her - all while Leigh was still in elementary school.
And with that Leigh was hooked and she began her pursuit of exploring her creative path.
