Classic, beautiful necklace. The size of the stone is perfect - not too big, not to small. The color is gorgeous and very 'serene.' Linda helped me and answered all my questions quickly. Received the necklace in record time. I love it and will be back. 😊 Thank you!

About

Linda Blackbourn Jewelry

Linda Blackbourn Jewelry is really just me, some rocks and a flair for design and fashion. I started creating jewelry nearly 10 years ago -- selling online, and in craft shows ... and it has grown into a wonderful passion. I say that the "gemstones don't need much intervention from me", and it's true. Their beauty on their own is enough -- they just need a little silver or gold, and a little direction.

In 2008, I worked with a group of neighbor/artists to start a local gallery/shop, in Silver Spring, MD, called ArtSpring. Over time I met a lot of the local artist and indie crafters and I loved the coalition we created. I left the organization of ArtSpring in 2011, (which is now in Takoma Park, MD). I am no longer affiliated.

In September of 2012, working with a business partner (another local jeweler) -- we collaborated with some like minded individuals to start GALA Artisan Jewelry and Gifts, in Kensington, MD. (http://www.galaartisans.com). GALA is a store selling hand crafted work of all types (not just jewelry), and is run by the artists who create the work.

My work is available at several brick and mortar shops, I will still do some selected shows in the DC/MD region as well, but nowhere is better than Etsy.

Hi all! Welcome to my Etsy shop. I hope you love my jewelry as much as I love making it. I use the finest materials I can get my hands on -- so if you see a gemstone - it's probably A grade or better! I don't use fake stones or glass - and if I do, I'll tell you in the description. I use .925 Sterling Silver which is 92.5% silver, mostly, but also 14 KT Gold Filled wires and findings, and Karen Thai silver or "fine silver (99% pure). I do not use silver plate or gold plate - it's fine for short lived pieces, but that stuff wears off! Anything you buy from me ... I want you to have it forever, and to pass it to your daughter, or your niece, or someone!

Have fun browsing, and don't forget to visit again. These fingers are always working.
