Linda Walker Dette
San Clemente, CA. USA
After over 30 years in an unrewarding career in the legal field, I
discovered my passion and am an emerging jewelry artist specializing
I have always had a great love for jewelry and have travelled to see
special jewelry shows in Chicago and California. I collect Art Deco
pieces designed by Erte. I am taking college and emeritus classes in
metalsmithing, design, lapidary and workshops on anything else I can
find. I currently do n ot have a website as I am building up my
inventory and have a very loyal following of clientele.
I started building my customers by working charity events, proving
them with lovely items for their fund raisers and donating a
percentage of my sales. I have some items in the San Clemente Art
Gallery (juried)and some small businesses such as nail salons and
small boutiques. I am invited to take my trunk shows to several major
events as well.
I am a member of MASSC (Metal Arts Society of Southern California),
OCBS (Orange County Bead Society which is sponsored by the Bowers
Museum in Santa Ana, California), a Lapidary Club of South Orange
County and will be continuing my education throughout the rest of my
life. I am excited to join thi s august assembly of international
jewelers and look forward to being a member and hopefully, down the
line, contributing to it.
