Growing up in rural Texas, Haley Lebeuf found inspiration in the joyful and independent spirit of her family. In particular, her grandmother, who was an avid painted and traveler, would often return home with a treasure to share. These gifts are what first inspired her foray into the jewelry making world.
After her grandmother passed, Haley inherited some of her jewelry. Holding the pieces in her hands, she truly knew then the power of the heirloom, solidifying the true meaning of jewelry in her mind; a token of love, a shared memory, a joyful personal expression.
Haley is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin holding a BS in Advertising. In 2007, she enrolled in an extracurricular metalsmithing class at Austin Community College in order to learn the basics of jewelry making in earnest. From there Haley gained extensive experience in several professional jewelry settings before founding the eponymous brand of Haley Lebeuf Jewelry in 2011.
Outside of the studio, you'll catch her soaking up (or currently missing) Austin's vibrant two-stepping scene, hiking through the beautiful greenbelt or paddling along the shores of Lady Bird Lake.
Above all, she loves making jewelry and forging her creative path in her own business.
