Designer Highlight: Leah Yard Designs

Working with designers and creatives is life-giving. To be able to support someone at their dream and craft is an honor. When you buy their pieces, whether through boutiques like us or directly from them, you are supporting a dream and the reason they are here. 

These designers have a vision and pour their heart and soul into their work just to bring you something beautiful; something treasured. My heart could leap right out of my chest knowing we get to further that!

This week we will be highlighting jewelry designer, Leah. Leah reached out to me in 2019 and I knew that her collection would fit right in at Beautiful Dust.

Her classic, delicate look is something our customers gravitate towards. I responded to her email, "Yes, you'd be fantastic! But we will have to wait until March to bring it in." We were fully committed to our current collection and would bring it on for the next rollout. 

We all know what March 2020 was like. Needless-to-say I had to pause on bringing her in. Determined to stay the course and with loyal customers, I was able to bring her in at the start of summer. What may seem like a small delay, felt like forever. 

We love Leah, a sweetheart who deeply cares about her design and customers. She's been a doll to work with and we are always amazed her her work!


"The inspiration behind LYD is a mixture of classic Hollywood and everyday style. Our goal is to design pieces that add a touch of glamour to each day. Every item can be styled for a night out, or paired with distressed denim and a t-shirt (our favourite fashion juxtaposition)"

Here are some of the products we are carrying and why we love them so much!
