“Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life.”

Meet Leba London - the Lady from Ajo and her Distinctive Copper Jewelry.
She discovered the world of beadwork after an injury inhibited her ability to continue working as a registered nurse. Upon relocating to Ajo, Arizona she began working with copper paying homage to the copper mining history of her new home. Developing a deep appreciation for copper and its therapeutic properties through personal experience, she weaves exquisite jewelry incorporating beads and gemstones. All pieces are one of a kind and commissions are welcome. You can see Leba’s distinctive copper jewelry at Art Under the Arches Gallery and Gifts and at the Saturday morning Artisans Mercado in the Ajo Plaza.
