About the Artist
Linda Azar is a studio jeweler living in the mountains of Western North Carolina. She grew up in Saint Petersburg, Florida and received a BA in Architecture from the University of Florida. After moving to Asheville NC, she completed a two-year Professional Craft program for Metals and Jewelry at Haywood Community College. Linda exhibits her work in select galleries and numerous craft shows. She has also been a member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild since 2014. Linda’s work consists largely of compositions inspired by the interrelationship between the organic and the architectural. She often finds inspiration by observing subtle details in the world around her, such as plants forging their way through sidewalks, branches springing forth from a tree or the unintended patterns created by erosion. She works primarily with silver and semi-precious stones.
