Why Shaun Leane?
For over twenty years Shaun Leane has been an exciting and innovative British jewellery designer. His signature style brings together exacting craftsmanship and edgy elegance.
Shaun started his career as a traditional apprentice at the bench in London’s jewellery quarter, learning diamond mounting and antique restoration.This classical, technical education is the foundation for Shaun's jewellery.
Although Shaun's training was steeped in tradition he always played with conventions which led to his famous collaborations including his longstanding partnership with Lee Alexander McQueen. During this time they created a series of provocative catwalk jewels that have become iconic milestones in both the art of couture jewellery and the history of runway fashion.
These amazing pieces have been exhibited museums including the V&A and The Metropolitan Museum and are acknowledged as contemporary works of art in their own right.
