"In the fall of 2010, my father (a USMC Captain stationed in Camp Pendleton) died unexpectedly. To deal with my grief, I kept busy by using my hands. I enrolled in several metal-smithing classes and began creating jewelry for my friends and family.
My signature pieces are my wine foil necklaces. As a base, I use a stainless steel washer to which I carefully adhere a wine foil and manipulate it to give it a slightly distressed and vintage look. Each wine foil is sealed with an epoxy resin to really pop the subtle colors of the foil. The pieces were such a success that Lyleigh Design was born.
Always a proud Marine, the Semper Fi Fund was one of my father's favorite organizations. As a tribute to my father, Lyleigh Design will be donating 20% of all sales to the Semper Fi Fund in his honor." – Susan Neunreiter
