Raised in Melbourne Victoria, Leigh Fortington moved to Noosa Queensland in 1987. After working in retail selling jewellery, she wanted to be the one designing the jewellery. Her love and passion for jewellery grew stronger and her dream of one day having her own jewellery line became a reality in 2009.
Leigh says her inspiration for her collections come from her amazing beachside lifestyle. Drawing many influences from the Noosa lifestyle, Leigh incorporates materials such as leather & pearls accompanied by earth & beach tones into a number of pieces she designs.
Leigh Fortington designs with a classic yet modern edge with the notion of dressing up the most casual of outfits that adds an instant element of luxury. Leigh says “jewellery is a treat, an important means of expressing yourself”. She believes in creating something individual but relaxed enough to be worn everyday. Every piece is made with love.
