Today I am featuring Raedawn (Linda). I am adding a new feature to my Sunday Selections and here it is:
I grew up and lived most of my life in Maryland, but a short “sabbatical” in Ontario, Oregon, and a longer one in Silver City, New Mexico, had a definite influence on my work. My current jewelry includes themes that are primal/mythic, romantic/decorative, contemporary, and southwestern.
My jewelry has been sold in several emporiums in Maryland and shown in many galleries in New Mexico and Oregon. It also has been shown, alongside my visual art, in a variety of venues. After moving to Lowell, Massachusetts, I am currently focusing on the wider audience that the internet provides to share my jewelry. And yes, I am still active as a visual artist.
I love to combine seemingly disparate elements. For example, I love to pair semi-precious stones and glass; large chunky nuggets with tiny Swarovski crystals; coral and bone with sterling silver accents. It enchants me to combine these different elements, and I am always surprised at where my jewelry leads me. I never met a bead I didn’t like.
Beading is a journey, as is art. I never know when something will inspire me to go into unfamiliar territory, and I love branching out to use new forms of jewelry making. For example, I recently combined shiny faceted Czech glass beads, highly deco, with long pieces of tied rice paper for a look I’m not sure how to describe yet (except that it follows my love of mixed media art). And as a journey, working on each piece, whether it be a necklace or a pair of earrings, is a wonderful experience. It’s this experience of mystery and joy that I want my jewelry to convey to you.
I hope you enjoy visiting my shop and sharing parts of my journey. Maybe you will find something that can add uniquely to your own journey.
I love the work I see in Linda's shop. And my favorite part of her shop are her mixed-media hanging art. I happen to love symbolism and her work touches my heart. Her jewelry is also exceptional.
What I like to do is to select one favorite item from each category in her shop.
Art: For The Wall
Necklaces: Green It was very difficult for me to choose one favorite necklace. They are all gorgeous.
So, actually when I think of Linda's work I think of a very interesting mind. Her work is fabulous.
