Holiday twinkles...

'Tis the season of enchantment - with twinkling lights amidst the snow, visions of candles atop beautifully crafted Menorahs, tasty sugar-plums as well as freshly made latkes, and stockings carefully hung by the chimney awaiting a generous visit from St. Nicholas...

This has been yet another year of changes at Atelier Linde Lim. Wedding-related commissions continue to keep us busy year round. You can find the latest installment of natural diamond engagement rings below, all of which are set in lustrous 18K white, yellow, and rose golds.





The studio warmly welcomed two talented new apprentices, Anzhelika and Ramón, to keep the tradition of goldsmithing alive. Anzhelika hails from St. Petersburg, Russia and has a background from the Russian Academy of Arts in metal. Ramón arrived to the Windy City by way of Taxco, Mexico where he studied sculpture and metal. He is finishing his last round of apprenticeships before taking the goldsmithing examination next year. Both of them bring a tremendous amount of energy into the studio!

Lastly, Metalwerkstatt, our fine jewelry school, is equipped with five work stations for the growing number of accepted students. In the coming year, we will have an updated website dedicated solely to the school which will include a student gallery. We also hope to be able to offer a limited number of need-based scholarships beginning in the spring quarter.

Wishing everyone a joyous holiday season, and until 2012...
