For many years Linda Martin, a resident of historic Lancaster, PA, was designing jewelry for her own enjoyment. As a self-taught artist, Linda has been sharing these unique designs since 1987. Inspired by her love of antiques, Linda takes lovely treasures that might otherwise be ignored or abandoned in an old jewelry box and creates a masterpiece. It is in the mind’s eye, that ability to create jewelry with an item that seems long past its prime. These individual little treasures have Victorian flair and a truly feminine heritage all their own. Each piece is created with antique buttons, beads, charms and other interesting finds. It’s recycling at its finest.
