Nice to meet you!

We Are Addison Weeks

When Lee Addison Lesley and Katherine Weeks Mulford first started designing jewelry together, they were drawn to the natural beauty of gemstones. Each gemstone, with its own particular cut and quality, was as unique as a painting. In jewelry, each gemstone, Lee and Kat realized, could be as individual as the person wearing it.  

Art has always been the shared language between Lee and Kat, Southern designers who have been friends for twenty years. Lee is attracted to Florentine art, inspired by her travels. Kat gravitates towards more modern styles — Pop art and vintage finds. After ten years at Turq Jewelry, the pair saw a need for versatile, high-quality jewelry and launched Addison Weeks in 2012. Though they have different artistic views and influences, Lee and Kat push each other to design pieces that blend their tastes. The resulting collection is classic yet nuanced, and each product is entirely unique.

Addison Weeks was listed as one of Oprah’s Favorite things in 2016. The collection can be found in boutiques across the country and on leading luxury marketplaces

The addison:

Lee Addison Lesley grew up in Richmond, Virginia. As a child, she would set up a jewelry stand at the end of her driveway and sell pieces made from her mother’s vintage jewelry. Lee studied Art History at Mary Baldwin College in Virginia and later studied Graphic Design at the Portfolio Center in Atlanta.

“My love of jewelry blossomed when I was studying abroad in Florence. The Italian gold and classic roman coins made such an impression on me. I love designs that are timeless and graceful for any age.”

- Lee

The weeks:

Katherine Weeks Mulford grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina. Kat was always interested in creating, whether it was producing backyard plays or illustrating books. She studied Art History at Davidson College in North Carolina and later studied Graphic Design at the Portfolio Center in Atlanta.

“I love digging through piles of vintage jewelry at the flea market. I find inspiration in old lockets and chains. The style and vibe of the 70s definitely speaks to me.”
