Get to Know
I have been designing jewelry since 1979. I started out by taking some metalsmithing classes and learned the basics of forging metal from a local silversmith. I eventually set up a small studio in my home. I enjoyed designing jewelry for friends and family, but some intangible piece was still missing for me. In time, I set metalwork aside and got involved with floral arranging, silk painting, and fabric and paper crafts. 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. I had finally found what had been missing for me: the richness of color! It was color which had drawn me into floral work and dying silk. With high quality beaded jewelry I could combine my love of color with my passion for jewelry. 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. Linda Landig Contemporary Artisan Jewelry is known for its luscious colors and rich textures. When you wear a piece of Linda Landig Contemporary Artisan Jewelry, people will notice that you have a taste for unique and distinctive, quality jewelry.
