She has taught jewellery and bead making workshops. She was a founding member of the Jewish Artists’ Guild and a volunteer in the arts program at the May Court Hospice.
Linda creates original colourful and playful jewellery designs using silver, polymer clay and silver wire. Her polymer clay one-of-a-kind beads and jewellery is handmade using various complex techniques like Skinner Blend, Mica-Shift, Mokume Gane and Ikat. Linda has been working in polymer clay since 1990 when she started adding it to her silver pieces. After being formally trained in polymer clay techniques, she now works almost exclusively with it. Precious metal leaf and mica and embossing powders give these handmade beads a unique finish. Many of these wearable art pieces are further embellished with Swarovski crystals, natural gemstones and pearls.
