Frost admits that he didnât grow up rich which inspired everyone within his family to work harder and smarter. He further adds, âMy mom is a queen and the backbone of our family. She has gone through the toughest times and always made sure we were happy no matter what was happening. Sheâs the one who got me into selling jewelry.â
Aside from his mother, Leo looked up to other famous jewelers while growing up, such as Iceman Nick, King Johnny, Greg Yuna and Ben Baller. All of which created many different styles of jewelry, demonstrating their creativity through art. âSeeing what they did was so cool growing up as a kid, they inspired me to be a jeweler and to one day create my own impact in the game.â
His mother taught him about the importance of taking risk in business. Iconic jewelers taught him that uniqueness is paramount while in the game. These are aspects that he maintained when making the custom piece for Tyler Herro.
âWe were choppin it up one day, right after he had got drafted and we just started talking about his new TH logo. One thing led to another and we were talking about chain and pendant designs. A few weeks later, he was in Houston playing the rockets and we ran into each other.
Next thing you know we were at the store picking our Cubans.â A vivid narration of how Leo sold the 48k piece to his new client.
