Nancy Linkin is inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds her Maine studio. Her classic Spiral Hoops, which are available in a small (1” long) or large (1.5” long) size, are handmade from Sterling Silver and 18 Karat Yellow Gold Bimetal. To create her contemporary jewelry, Nancy uses the anticlastic raising technique. Flat patterns are cut from sheets of gold and silver and hammered systematically over specialized tools. The final form is filed and sanded, then buffed to a high polish.
(Nancy Linkin passed away after a long fight with breast cancer in June 2019. In accordance with her wishes, Luke Sunde, her longtime friend and employee, and Liz Allen are continuing to produce her designs so that others may be inspired by the natural forms and fluid grace of her sculptural jewelry.)
