Linda enjoys designing and making jewelry in a variety of materials: platinum, gold, silver, brass, bronze, and wood—especially ebony. She has made settings for all types of stones and found objects, from classically faceted gems to cabo- chons, carved shell and bone, and fossilized shark teeth.
She spent fifteen years working as a designer and model maker at a jewelry shop and now is pursuing her own jewelry business. Previous to this, she oper- ated her calligraphy and sign-painting service. She has a BFA in Crafts from Carnegie-Mellon University and an MFA in metalsmithing from Cranbrook Academy of Art.
Linda has taught calligraphy, jewelry, and sign-painting workshops and classes in colleges, art centers, and calligraphy guilds. She has participated in art shows in New England, in Wisconsin, and in an international show for the Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG).
