Lindsay Huff's Profile

About

As a metalsmith, I love creating miniature worlds and portable art that can be worn around the wrist, reclining on the clavicle, hiding between two fingers, or hanging from spiral ears. I'm drawn to the intimacy of the scale of jewelry and the interaction than can occur between the maker and the wearer, even if they are strangers an ocean apart.

I'm a 2006 BFA graduate of Syracuse University hoping to eventually be totally self-employed.

Huffalo is Lindsay Huff, a Taurus who likes loudly played and made music, adventures, rescuing broken things, obnoxious Yinzerisms, radio singalongs, Mike Canton's Saturday soul show on WYEP FM and wyep.org, mysteries of Pittsburgh, and drinking the best cappuccino I can find (Espresso A Mano, La Prima Espresso, Enrico's Taza d'Oro, Commonplace Coffee, and Big Dog Coffee are my top 5, FYI). Huffalo is me and it is also us. Us is Lindsay Huff and Nicole Stemple--my partner since 2008, my better half, my best student of all time, my girlfriend and collaborator, and love of my life. In theory, Huffalo is me, Pretty Debonair is her, and Huffalo Debonair is us, but with all partnerships, the lines are blurry and smeary and we like it that way.
