As her work progressed and developed the butterfly
became a predominant symbol that kept presenting itself. The exploration of the
butterfly’s shape and form led to small hand-crafted sculptural outcomes that
would later become Leoma’s signature style within her jewellery practice.
These themes run deep and present themselves through Leoma’s designs; generating a contrast between pierced silhouetted
motifs combined with form. Leoma invites flashes of colour by introducing uniquely cut stones that present an anomaly that deviates from the form. The irregularity
and variations of the stones enhance the experience of Leoma’s jewellery which intensifies the intimacy that exists between object and body.
