About Linda Lewis

Share

“For over 30 years I have been creating one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces in sterling silver and gold using unusual semi-precious stones. My designs have the influence of ancient religious cultures with a contemporary feel.”

“The stones I choose for my designs are usually works of art created by nature, by setting them in silver and gold makes them even more precious. The art of creating jewelry expresses the spirit of the designer. By adorning the body with one of my pieces, I would hope that it helps them get in touch with their inner spirit.”
