About

Hi! Thanks for stopping by, and browsing through my li'l bracelet shop.

My name is Linda, and I'm a bracelet maker in New York City. I love all types of jewelry, but my focus is on decoupaged bracelets. I just love experimenting with different types of paper, ink and glitter, and playing around with color, texture and shape. My goal is to make wearable art.

I love to make things that are colorful, playful, whimsical, a little surreal. I've always enjoyed writing, so I like jewelry that can tell a story, or strike up a conversation. (True story: Once a pedicab driver stopped me to ask me about the bracelet on my wrist. Somehow, that conversation led to me convincing him to let me drive him around Central Park on his Pedicab...not an easy task!) Anyway, My bracelets are fun and eye-catching. They're great conversation…

They're great conversation pieces, and they're excellent ways to add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral or ordinary outfit.

For me, decoupaging is an art. When it's done well, it's a lot more complicated than simply cutting up old magazines, and gluing scraps of paper to an old bracelet. A typical bracelet takes about a week to make and seal properly. It has taken a lot of trial and error to find my perfect sealer, but I've finally found one that I'm really happy with. (Yay!)

If you have any questions about me or my bracelets, feel free to send me a message. I'm always happy to help.
