About

Welcome to my musings about beads, beauty, and the adventures of life.

About Me

I have been designing jewelry on and off for over 30 years. I started out by taking some metal smithing classes and learned the basics of forging metal from a local silversmith. I eventually set up a small studio in my home.  I worked with metals for about 10 years, but it never was quite the right “fit for me”.

All along I was collecting beads, but I had no real plans for using them. In Spring of 1995, I bought some lovely faceted fluorite and made a purple, green and topaz colored necklace for my mother-in-law. In designing this necklace, I discovered what had been missing for me: the richness of color!

With high quality beaded jewelry I could combine my love of color with my passion for jewelry design.  In time, I discovered the world of art beads:  from luscious colored lampwork beads to rustic ceramic work and textured metal clays!  Currently, much of my work incorporates art beads as the focal point or accents.

My jewelry has been in local galleries, shops and juried shows since 1998. I often do custom work, as well. In the summer of 2009 I set up an online shop. In July of 2010, I added Linda’s Bead Blog & Meanderings to my online presence.

I hope you will enjoy my musings and join in on the conversation.
