Linda Freedman Katz
Canadian jewelry designer, Linda Freedman Katz offers original, one off Sterling Silver designs, using organic techniques which she has 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.
Asymmetrical necklaces are created with misshapen contour and texture, inspired by and emulating the magic of nature.
Her work is most often done in mixed metals of Sterling Silver and Bronze as she strives for the dramatic effect of color and contrast. Her jewelry collections are generally hammered, large scale and chunky, intending to make a statement.
Producing one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry is important to Linda and reflect an expression of her personal taste. She rarely works with an established plan in mind. Things usually just evolve.
The creation of one interesting component can fuel the fire for the development of an entire jewelry piece or collection. Building upon a theme and playing for hours by adding to it, are often scenarios she uses to compile jewelry that sings to her.
Her jewelry collections are intended to be fun, eclectic, and versatile, to be worn every day to dress up a casual outfit or for special occasion as a statement piece. Her wish is that they are enjoyed and outlast the passage of time.
