Haiti Earthquake Benefit...

The images released following the earthquake which shook the island nation of Haiti on Tuesday, displayed the might of nature's fury coupled with the strength of a country rich with history, culture, and resiliency. It became more so touchingly personal when we found out the following morning that a beloved aunt and uncle of our friend, Maggy, were tragically killed.

As a 20+ year Red Cross volunteer who has helped provide aid to communities and peoples in need following natural disasters here and abroad, I hope this post will summon the compassion of an individual to consider the 22K gold, micro-pave diamonds and tourmaline drop earrings I am donating in the memory of Carmel and Cavour. All proceeds (retails at $5100) will be directed to the American Red Cross efforts in Haiti.

Please contact my studios for further details.

In memory of Cavour & Carmel

Welcoming in a new decade...

Wishing all of you good health, good cheer, good luck and a good year in 2010!

As many of my regular clients are aware of through recent holiday correspondence, this new year brings many changes to Linde Lim Designs. With the upcoming arrival of our twins, as well as my obstetrician-orderd bed rest, the studio will have very limited hours until April. During this time, only existing custom commissions will be worked on and I will honour all original deadlines as specified in their contracts.

Additionally, in June, I am excited to announce that my modern jewelry school, Metalwerkstatt, will officially open and begin offering the first round of classes, with some taught by Master Goldsmiths visiting from New York and Germany. More updates will be intermittently added so please keep checking back on the blog and my website!
