Linda has been designing for private clients most of her lifetime and only recently decided to formally launch her debut collection. She combines her training as an artist with her deep understanding of ancient jewelry making techniques to create one-of-a-kind, handmade, wearable art. Each piece as unique as the woman who wears it. Understated luxury and old-world sparkle comes through in her designs and chosen materials. Linda seeks out stones which are cut as they were centuries ago and prefers when the high karat gold she uses bears the hallmarks and glow of everyday wear. Her soulful collection exudes an organic elegance that is perfect for the modern woman.
“As a young girl I always understood the transformative nature of jewelry. A crown made of flowers and I was a princess, elegant and powerful. A sea glass necklace magically turned me into a dreamy mermaid, and a couple of large metal armbands made me feel like a heroine ready to take on the world. Those images continue to inspire me today. I design jewelry to speak to the multifaceted, ever evolving woman of today who dreams of what she may become while remembering and feeling proud of who she currently is.”
Its powerful when an entire collection speaks to you — when a designer’s talent and vision is so clearly communicated through their work.Such is the work of Linda Hoj. Wearing a piece from her collection makes you feel as if you’ve instantly become transformed with a sense of the past but a strong awareness of the present.Each of her exquisite one of kind designs, handcrafted in high karat gold, are meant to be cherished today and passed down to future generations.
