About the designer:

Celebrated world-wide for his modern romantic jewels that push the boundaries of contemporary design, Shaun Leane began his career training at the bench in London’s jewellery quarter, Hatton Garden. While working as a goldsmith, Leane began a long-standing collaboration with the late Alexander McQueen, creating provocative catwalk jewels that have become iconic milestones in the art of couture jewellery.

His creations have been described by Sotheby’s as “antiques of the future’’ and have seen the House of Shaun Leane receive recognition across the globe including Winner of U.K. Jewellery Designer of the Year, on four occasions, Walpole Best British Luxury Craftsmanship, and most recently, Fine Jewellery Brand of the Year at the 2016 UK Jewellery Awards.

About their Leopards award winner:

Prince’s Trust mentee, Katherine Anderson, drew inspiration from the fascinating world of Transport for London’s lost property department to create a bespoke necklace entitled ‘Lost and Found’.  A talented illustrator, Katherine was mentored by Shaun Leane for four months during which her design was brought to life by the experienced craftsmanship of our atelier.

“The idea of making these lost and forgotten items, some that may have been deeply loved at one stage into something beautiful felt perfect. I feel my design is for anyone who ever lost something they wish they could get back again and a reminder that some things get found.” 

The necklace will be sold through Fortnum & Mason, theleopards.co.uk and online at Shaunleane.com.  A percentage of all profits will be donated to the Prince’s Trust.
