The designer behind Loudee’s Jewelry, Linda Connor Cass, creates wearable art—necklaces, earrings and bracelets that are hand-crafted from natural stones and fine metals. An artist who has worked in many disciplines, including painting, pottery, metalsmithing and more, Linda has found that her creative vision is clearest when she’s working with gems, stones and beads. The inspiration provided by the array of color, texture and shape found in the stones enables Linda to create unique pieces—unique in that they are different from others’ jewelry, and also in that they are one-of-a-kind, and never duplicated. When you own a necklace or other piece of jewelry from Loudee’s, you own an original work of art.
Many of the beautifully crafted pieces on offer at Loudee’s Jewelry take their cues from the stones’ environments, and feature motifs from the natural world—dragonflies, leaves, lotus flowers, the burnished richness of wood. Others are dramatic, with large quartz pendants, sparkling czech glass, brightly hued turquoise, or unusual color combinations making a bold statement. Every woman can find her style reflected in Loudee’s necklaces, earrings or bracelets–whether the look she favors is classic and sophisticated, embraces the elegant and the feminine, or has a bohemian flair.
Materials like Thai silver, sterling silver, 14c gold, leather and satin play supporting roles to the showstopping gems and stones: Czech glass, turquoise, carnelian, jasper, amber, jade, amazonite, labradorite, agate, serpentine and amethyst. Each piece is hand-crafted to exacting standards, and will provide a lifetime of pleasure for its wearer.
Already have a special stone you’d like to have incorporated into an equally special piece of jewelry? Linda loves custom orders, especially for bridal jewelry, and will work closely with you to create a necklace, earrings or bracelet that will complement your sensibility, and garner you compliments every time you wear it.
