It's all about the beads and wire

I’m a self-taught jewelry designer who works with Jewish women who value their spirituality and religion, and want unique symbolic, or meaningful jewelry, accessories or kippot for every day, holidays, and special occasions.

Connect with your Jewish heritage, family, community and G-d.

We work together to create a design that is handcrafted with love, and gives her beauty, joy, and memories expressing her individual personalities and style. Custom orders are my favorite.

Connect to your Higher Power with chakra jewelry to activate your energy centers and and use gemstones to heal areas that need attention in your body.

Inspirations: 
- gemstone colors and healing characteristics relating to chakra centers, meditation, and tuning in to your Higher Self.
- charms and symbols with spiritual or religious meaning
- working individually with my clients to create a color scheme or design they see in their mind’s eye

Creating jewelry for me is all about celebrating life everyday and designing keepsales for holidays and other special occasions. It's the JOY in jewelry.

This means that the piece of jewelry you purchase from me:

- helps you feel beautiful, and joyous
- helps you to have happy memories of your special occasion
- you can be confident that you’ll receive the your item in plenty of time for your event and move on to the other details on your planning checklist
- is handmade in Illinois in the U.S.

It's a joy to have you choose the colors and size of your kippah for your bar/bat mitzvah or wedding and for you to have a memory of the happy occasion. My kippahs are freeformed, I do not follow a pattern and add beads as I am inspired. I intentionally do not make them round because I am imperfect as a human being. It thrills me when my clients understand this.

As a 6-year breast cancer Survivor, it excites me to help you design a gift for the Survivor in your life.

My workplace is the dining room table, and each room of our home plays a role: photography, packing and shipping, bead storage, and finished pieces and jewelry displays.

Each of my pieces is created with love and positive energy. It's all about joy, celebrating holidays and special occasions and every day! .

My ideas come from color combinations, gemstone combinations and my clients, who teach me how to make my products better.

Jewelry completes an outfit, the colors are vibrant and some of my designs are eclectic. I want you to feel more beautiful wearing one of my pieces.

Necklaces, earrings and bracelets are tested for durability before mailing them out. I want you to be satisfied.

I make my designs to be a part of your every day and special occasions: birthdays, bar/bat mitzvahs, and weddings. I love working on custom orders to create an exception design with you.

It all started when I was a little girl making necklaces and bracelets out of pony beads. I loved the feel of them. Fast forward to about 10 years ago, I attended a women's workshop where we made bracelets while listening to a speaker. It was so relaxing and refreshing, I knew I was hooked, or should I say strung?

Please get in touch to work with me on a new design or any of the jewelry and kippot in stock.

Shalom,
Linda

Welcome to my Etsy shop. I'm Linda and I create beautiful, meaningful jewelry and Jewish women's kippot for you to celebrate joy in life everyday.

I consider colors, gemstone qualities and different shapes when I design an item. Bold colors are such fun. I work with a combination of gemstone and glass beads to keep prices affordable. Please read my shipping policies.

My work is guaranteed, except for glazed glass, scrabble tile magnets or pendants which are not waterproof. Please contact me immediately if you have a problem.

My jewelry is designed for girls over 14 years old. Note that for little girls: swallowing hazards and lead may be present. Parental supervision is required. My bracelets are not toys and should not be tugged or pulled. Breakage may happen that way.

If you have ALLERGIES, please ask about the metals first. My designs are kept in a smoke-free part of our home. This is a pet- and smoke-friendly shop.

I can work with you to custom design a piece with you to match an outfit or your favorite colors. Just contact me and we'll work on it together.

I hope you'll visit often to see what new items I have listed.

LinorStore Jewelry Designs including, but not limited to: necklaces, bracelets, and earrings may pose a choking hazard to small children. Also, some of my designs feature Swarovski crystals, which contain lead.

Although Swarovski claims the lead in their crystals is not” easily released”, it is better to be safe.
