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.

Gave this to our daughter in law for Mother's Day....and she loved it...
I had it gift wrapped so I didn't see the necklace in person until she opened
it but the only complaint I and she would have is the packaging....Because
it's 3 figures and a chain (boy, girl, mother) and was packaged in this tiny
plastic zipper bag, when she took it out of the bag, we all had to take turns
untangling it. IT seemed like an unnecessary thing to happen given someone
had to package this before gift wrapping it...There should have been a way
to protect the chain from wrapping itself around the figures and then tightly getting knotted.

I would have given this 5 stars for but I gave it 4 due to the awful
packaging.

My only suggestion although this is a lovely necklace is to figure out a way
so the person receiving this item doesn't have to deal with the tangled
mess when opening their gift

I bought this gift for a dear friend from New Delhi, India who had to leave her son behind in order to attend college here. She sees him twice a year, but he lives with her parents. She is so anxious to have him come here permanently. Obviously, this gift has special significance. Otherwise, I would not have spent so much for it. It is a mixed metal and not particularly lustrous so I am concerned about how well it will wear. Still, it will mean much to someone who knows how to value it

                I had given her one just like it several years ago and her daughter wore it to school and lost it on the playground. She was devastated and never told me until I asked her this year what she wanted for Christmas. She told me the story and said all she would want was a replacement for the lost necklace. I was afraid you wouldn't have them still. You did and the look on her face when she opened it was priceless. So I also bought one for my other daughter-in-law and she loved hers as well.
