She has been exhibiting and selling her pieces throughout the country ever since.
Linda’s love for gemstones in every size, shape and color has given her the opportunity to find, study, research and work with the world’s best suppliers. Drawing from her varied experiences, Linda creates unique pieces of high quality fine jewelry.
