Project Description

Lea McWhorter

Jewelry Artist – Happy Valley, Oregon

I design and handcraft jewelry with Semi-precious stones, Pearls, Austrian Swarovski Crystals and Sterling Silver. I purchase pieces I incorporate in my designs from all over the world.

This will be my 16th year designing jewelry for the Rose Festival Court Princesses. They wear my designs for Queen Coronations, Grand Floral Parades and Knighting Ceremonies. My collection has sold at the downtown Portland Hilton, Marriott, Multnomah Athletic Club (MAC) and is at Made in Oregon stores.

In addition to my regular line of jewelry, I design cancer bracelets representing five different cancers in which part of the proceeds of sales goes back to their foundations. I design a line of jewelry that the purchase of stones goes back to Nairobi tribal women in Kenya.
