Welcome to Lee M. Buchanan Jewelry—Timeless Jewelry Designs®
We (Lee & Barbara) offer unique, natural stone jewelry, artisan designed and handcrafted with natural gemstones, pearls, world known Swarovski crystals and pearls, lamp glass, Czech glass beads and high quality gold and silver findings.
We married in 1993, and established Heritage Visual Arts in 1994 to promote Lee’s artistic endeavors under our corporate HVA business umbrella.
Lee’s love of lighthouses had us traveling throughout the Mid Atlantic area, to New England and the West Coast. We participated in numerous art and craft fairs, showing Lee’s photography in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland. Our travel adventures also included visits to rock, mineral and bead shows.
We moved from the Philadelphia area to South Central Pennsylvania in 1998 after Barb accepted a new position in the Lancaster area. Lee continued his photography and painting, and traveled with Barb to business conferences.
Professional and conservative dress was part of Barb’s management position and versatile, affordable jewelry was needed. Our earlier visits to gem and bead shows and Lee’s art training and knowledge of color, shape and texture encouraged him to experiment with jewelry design. Lee’s handcrafted jewelry met Barb’s needs, and the foundation for Lee M. Buchanan Jewelry was laid.
Everything we make is done in-house, handmade one at time, not mass-produced. We do not have a huge warehouse stocked high with our products. We search for the very best stones, findings and components to insure we maintain the quality our customers have come to expect.
As a home-based business, we enjoy the company of our “helper” cats: Amy, Ginger and Maggie. They like to keep Lee company in his studio, or they may gather in Barb’s office, where a long table at the double windows provides a great space for lounging, watching birds and deer outside, or just curling up for a nap. You'll find our "helpers" make frequent appearances in our blog!
Family and friends provided support and encouragement when we first started making our jewelry, but word spread and our business has grown. Customers see the passion we put into our work and appreciate the excellent quality of our artisan, handcrafted jewelry pieces.
We currently offer a wide variety of necklaces, bracelets, earrings and pendants. Many are available as three-piece matching sets. We began offering Jewelry Collections early in 2015 to expand your choices of beautiful coordinating jewelry.
Lee incorporates Swarovski crystals into many of his designs, as their variety and quality are well known. You’ll find semi-precious natural stones and pearls in some pieces.
Lee M. Buchanan Jewelry is part of our parent company, Heritage Visual Arts Inc. We are a family-owned business. You know whom you’re dealing with when doing business with us. We guarantee your satisfaction!
Thank you for visiting!
