A Journey Into Shaun Leane‘s World! Paul and Shaun begin the chat by discussing his early days and influences as a jewelry designer. Shaun, most known for his innovative work with late fashion designer Alexander McQueen, discusses how he first became interested in jewelry as a young apprentice in London.
His path to creating magnificent jewelry began in the traditional realm of goldsmithing, where precision and artistry were valued highly.
