Announcement   I'm a Brooklyn-based artist/jewelry designer. My jewelry is a contemporary (and sometimes, quirky!) reinterpretation of the traditional talisman, a miniature piece of personal sculpture. My main material is sterling silver, but I can cast in any metal, so let me know if there's something special you'd like. Check back often as I'm constantly adding pieces - or like my fan page at www.Facebook.com/BixieStudios for real time updates.

I keep a few pieces here with me to send out immediately...and will hand craft more when I see things are selling out. This shouldn't take more than a few days max should the one you want be out of stock. Convo me if there's something you're particularly interested in and don't see.

If I could rate this a 10 I would! It is SO well made and the feel of it and the dimension of it feels like a little gorgeous sculpture. Linda did a custom finish--which came out perfectly and she was SO prompt w/communication and she got it to me in lightning speed! Linda is a top quality artist and she is the exact reason that I shop @ Etsy!

Yet another fabulous pendant from Linda. Can't recommend her highly enough. Her jewelry is unique, beautiful, and very high-quality.

About

Contemporary jewelry designs to ward off ancient spirits

Ever since I could hold a tool I've loved creating things: from glass sculpting, to silkscreening, ceramics, and ultimately - metalsmithing / jewelry design. I adore working with sterling silver and precious metals...taking raw metals and forging something that gleams gives a satisfaction that's hard to describe. Making jewelry is a true passion, one that I've come to via a somewhat circuitous route.

My design sensibilities were definitely formed from a LOT of travel**, and being exposed to many cultural traditions. I'm fascinated how people all over the world, and from time immemorial, have ascribed meaning and powers to inanimate objects.

To that end, I've founded Bixie Studios to explore the concept of contemporary, personal talismans. Both the kind that are time honored traditions (but with a unique twist) as well as the kind that have personal meaning (ray gun? puzzle piece?) and only hint at the deeper context. Who am I? What am I about? What do I value?

Each piece is handmade and utterly unique. Entirely personal. Mix & matchable, every day's choices can be a visible mini statement of an internal story.

A wonderful gift for one's self, they also are great corporate/organization gifts and wedding party presents; bridesmaids and groomsmen can have matching styles (charms or earrings for the ladies, cufflinks for the men). They also make a unique gift for the Best Man. Convo me if you want multiples for an event or corporate gift; I have special rates for large orders and can make any of my pieces in any metal (special order).

I live in Brooklyn brownstone with an awesome boyfriend and hope for a dog, if I can convince the landlord to change the rules.

Additional policies and FAQs
Love and care of jewelry: All items are sterling silver with patina (darkened) to enhance the contrast. To preserve this dark finish you must not dip your jewelry in any anti-tarnish liquids or use an anti-tarnish cloth of any kind. Doing so will take off the dark finish. If you want to clean your chain, use a soft clean cloth to lightly buff the surface.

If you take care of your jewelry it will stay awesome for years to come.
