John & Linda Whitney
From their home base in Sarasota, Florida, John and Linda Whitney infuse their jewelry pieces with whimsy and a lot of personality. It all began when John, as a young art student in the 1970's at the University of Kansas, would sketch Linda's orchestra rehearsals and quartet workshops. These sketches transformed into sculpted figures created using traditional methods of metalsmithing. With the help of their studio assistant, Kim, and their talented Havanese "art dogs," John and Linda forge, solder, and stretch the imagination and the possibilities of their beloved, chosen craft.
