Linda Read

Medium: Metal

Region: Vancouver Coast & Mountains


Linda’s home and jewellery studio are in the Strathcona neighbourhood of Vancouver. Her journey with metal began in a night school class in 2002. Usually her pieces are individually fabricated out of sterling silver, gold and semi-precious gems.

Linda often accents her pieces with Keum Boo, an ancient Korean technique of fusing gold to silver and she loves working with texture on metal. Linda loves the design challenge of an unusual shape or size of stone. She strives to find the balance between beauty and comfort.
Experimentation with oxidizing and textures and gem stones create unique pendants…some more asymmetrical, some more like a flower. Linda’s jewellery features layering of metals. The challenge was to design layers that were all different yet formed a cohesive statement when finished.
