Made in Florida

“Experimentation is the true force behind our designing.”

As an art student at University of Kansas in the 1970’s, John Whitney would sketch his future wife Linda’s orchestra rehearsals and quartet workshops. Gathering inspiration from the alluring sounds and sleek structure of the instruments, John turned the drawings into sculpted figures using traditional metalsmith techniques. Today, John and Linda design their one-of-a-kind creations together in Sarasota, Florida. With the help of their studio assistant, and their perky Havenese “art dogs,” they invent, forge, and stretch the possibilities of their beloved craft.

Lovely original necklace that warms the heart


The pictures on the website don't do this justice. The skirt on the little girls is a really nice patine and color. I bought this because my wife is expecting and I have my birthday on Valentine's Day and I'm kind of sick of always being the one to receive - instead of give a present on this tackiest of days.



Wife loves it


She hasn't taken it off yet. Gets many comments.

Unique gift


This was a perfect gift for my mom's birthday. It's unique and she loves it! I do wish that the boy figure had some copper on it, maybe pants or shorts?





Necklace is unique and made with great craftsmanship. Very impressed.



I love it!
