Linda Joy Leland
Linda creates one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art by handpicking unusual pendants and then stringing them with complimentary beads. She strings beads to make jewelry with the emphasis on the metaphysical healing and protective properties as well. Linda also takes custom orders. She has taken some jewelry making classes but is primarily self-taught taking inspiration from the materials she uses and her own collection of jewelry.

She has studied color and design and has certificates of graduation from Sheffield School of Interior Design, Western School of Essential Feng Shui--Advanced Training in Essential Feng Shui, Essential Compass Feng Shui, and Denise Linn International Institute of Interior Alignment.

Linda has over 30 years of business experience including owning and operating a "Top 10" rated (Consumer Checkbook) San Francisco Bay Area travel agency which allowed her to travel around the world to explore different cultures and appreciate their traditional art.
