Lynne draws her design inspiration from the natural beauty of the beaches, mountains and countryside around the world.
She began metal smithing as a young girl in Northern California, where she was born and raised. Her father, who made jewelry as a hobby, introduced her to the art of jewelry making and her curiosity and desire to work with metal and stones grew into adulthood. Lynne designs and fabricates her jewelry by hand using yellow, rose and white gold, sterling silver, brass, bronze and copper.
She uses a wide array of stones, precious gems, sea glass, shells and seeds. Especially popular is her work with geodes, commonly known as "Druses", her work featuring the gingko leaf motif and her use of a metal-cast wishbone.
Lynne works both from her home studio in Southern Connecticut and out of her office in the New York City diamond district. In addition to the pieces for sale on this website, Lynne works on a commission basis designing one-of-a-kind pieces for her clients. She also creates repurposed pieces using her clients' (and her own) old jewelry, making more updated new pieces by reusing the metal and stones from the old pieces.
