Leah and Billy started Baleen in 2013 because they saw something missing. Quality jewelry that is handmade in the United States that is also affordable and fashion-forward. Baleen is all of those things as well as a combination of our passions and talents.
Leah's background is in apparel design and styling - she loves clothing and accessories and is extremely aesthetically focused. Billy, who is also very aesthetically focused, is a trained Graphic Designer and Jeweler and loves making physical, functional objects with his hands.
