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. collection

                        My wife got this as a gift from her boys on Christmas (purchased by dad). She loves the necklace/charm and wears it proudly. In the week and a half that she has had the necklace she has received many complements from her friends.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Prompt delivery and well packaged too. Very easy to wrap for Christmas.

                        Is she trying to catch her kids from falling? If I were a mom I would not buy this.

                        I understand that motherhood is a juggling act but this looks more like she's dropping the balls (her children)

                        The materials are likely to cause an allergic reaction and the image does not look inspiring. I think iif I got this as a gift I'd be offended.

                        It's a little creeepy.. it looks like they are chained together or falling ... it just wouldn't be something I would wear... Maybe if the kids were all supported better? It just looks strange to me. sorry.

                        I don't like the idea of having someone staring at my chest trying to figure out the necklace. This seems like it could be cute in sculpture form though.

                        Very cute. If you like your kids, you wouldn't be dropping them. And if you don't like anyone staring at your chest then you shouldnt wear any necklaces that are longer than a choker.

                        Seems negative. Not much good catching everyone else if you yourself are barely hanging on.

                        Think this should be looked at with whimsy. don't take it so seriously! Clever and fun piece.

                        It doesn't seem very wearable...It looks too long and the design doesn't really stand out in the picture, so I doubt it would be any better in real life.

                        Katie Foley

                        I like this item. As the mother of 4, it is hard to find a necklace representative of my family. You can find a mother with 1, 2 or 3 children easily, but 4 is very rare. I also have several friends who have 4 kids and they would like something that they could wear that shows their kids. Thanks for the possibility.
