Leslie Francesca Designs

Bay Area native Leslie Francesca fashions jewelry that makes people happy. Her designs — which tend toward brightly colored minerals and stones in classic settings — manage to blend delicate and rustic in beautiful and surprising ways: Think rough-cut stone studs encased in the thinnest, daintiest gold; glittery, deep blue druzy drop earrings that can look more unaccountably expensive when dressed up, or kinda punk when paired with leather and a T-shirt; and chunky agate rings cut in the subtle shape of an arrowhead. All of her pieces are handmade, one-of-a-kind, and best of all, affordable — usually under $100.
