Canadian based jewelry designer, Linda Freedman Katz offers original, one-of-a-kind Argentium Sterling Silver & mixed metal designs, utilizing organic techniques developed after years of study, exploration and discovery. Her jewelry collections were born out of creative play, the making of interesting components and the fascination of combining them in an unusual way. Her professional career in Clothing Design has provided her with an abundance of ideas and a drive to create fine quality, versatile jewelry which makes a fashion statement as well as complements the wearer. Always the visionary and hands-on artist, Linda seeks the unique, the interesting and the unexpected in the world around her. Her understated elegant collection of organic texture and misshapen form are a distinct expression of Linda’s quirky personality and unique style. Natural textures such as tree bark or seashells, contemporary architecture, abstract art or jazz music inspire Linda’s imagination and are reflected in her work. Forging silver chain links with her many hammers, or melting silver sheet with her torch produces unpredictable varied textures and visual effects to Linda’s jewelry. Fired bronze components, also hand fabricated by Linda, add color and impart an eclectic, melange aesthetic, which reflect her fun, signature look. Linda now resides in the Okanagan, BC where her mountain top studio is located.
