Nancy Linkin's passion for metalsmithing began in her early twenties when she became captivated by the age-old process of forming metal directly with hammers. Her unique Twisted Leaf Earrings are handmade from Sterling Silver and 18 Karat Yellow Gold Bimetal and are 1.5” long. Inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds her Maine studio, her contemporary designs are created with the anticlastic raising technique.
(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.)
