Le Ster in the Press | Benchpeg

We are absolutely delighted that our founder and designer, Aishleen Lester, has been interviewed by Rebecca Van Rooijen on Benchpeg UK this month. 

"Aishleen is a well reputed fine artist in her own right, known for large scale, sculptural installations and has previously exhibited in the Riflemaker and Nyehaus galleries. Trained at Wimbledon School of Art and the Royal Academy Schools, she built up her jewellery industry credentials by working with the likes of Shaun Leane and Paul Raven before venturing out on her own establishing the label Le Ster."

How did you come to work in the jewellery industry?

My arrival to the jewellery industry has been somewhat unconventional. I trained initially in fine art, gaining a Masters from The Royal Academy. Following this, I was represented by the Riflemaker Gallery in Soho producing large-scale installations and was delighted to have the opportunity to exhibit in both London and New York.
