Today’s MotD showcases another wonderful local artist, Linda J. Herd, of Albany, OR. She makes exquisite metal jewelry in a very bold, dramatic style. I find these beautiful earrings a wonderful example of creating a powerful expression of mandala art in a delicate size. These would be super fun to wear!

About her designs, she states:

Inspiration for my designs comes from materials, environments, and lifestyles. The influences of the urban sophistication of New York and the natural beauty of Oregon combine to give my work a distinctive look. My studies in architecture and urban design have taught me the impact detail has on style. It is my firm belief that jewelry should make a statement, not a suggestion; my designs reflect that principle in their boldness of scale, texture, and color.

You can view many of her beautiful jewelry designs on her web site: HerDesignStudios.com or (for all of us local to Albany, OR) we can see them in person at Gallery Calapooia (Albany, OR) or Touchstone Gallery along the Oregon coast (Yachats, OR)

Her jewelry reminds us that we can all be bold AND beautiful at the same time!

Happy Coloring!
