ABOUT LINDA MAY

 

It’s no accident I make textile jewelry.

 

I’ve been sewing all my life. In high school, I could start a dress in the morning and wear it that night on a date.

My textile jewelry is made of bright silk, bold wool, and fancy beaded felt.

I meticulously hand stitch the tiny glass beads to big felt rounds. And I make the silver chain by hand.

I love the feel of fabric. I taught myself metalsmithing as a contrast in hard and soft.

I try out combinations — apple green with magenta, metallic with matte. When my heart beats a little faster, I know I got it right.

 

I'd love to hear from you.

Linda May
