Bali - Lee Downey is a California native who has been making jewelry for over 35 years. He is now based in Bali with a family of craftsmen in a purpose-built studio. They started in 1984 to grow the collaboration that creates this art and the work shows intense attention to detail, quality and style. Starting out as a silversmith in Arizona and being immersed in the turquoise trade started a lifelong passion for the Rocks.
Years of traveling widely through Asia and generally getting the lay of the land has brought a design sense that reflects a fusion of cultures and times and places....unique and very much geared to the artist rather than the market.
