Linda McFarlane’s work as a jeweller has come as a logical extension of her original training and lifelong interest in fashion, design and textile arts. She likes to explore the possibilities presented by the use of simple materials and forms, making the most of their varied characteristics, textures, colours, and reflective qualities.
Linda places particular emphasis on combinations of opposites in her work and plays with generic contrasts such as light and dark, rough and smooth, shiny and dull. She has made a special range of environmental jewellery for GroundWork gallery using natural materials such as stone, shell, lava and leather and experimenting with some new combinations of materials and designs. Linda’s background is in textile design and teaching and she lives and works in Norwich.
