Stop in on Saturday, May 30th between 10 am and 4 pm and meet Linda Cass of Loudee’s Jewelry. Loudee's Jewelry is a contemporary line of jewelry inspired by
the colors and textures of natural stones. All of Loudee’s jewelry is fabricated with some form of beadwork, ranging from simple to complex, and she hand-picks all of the stones used in her designs to ensure great quality and color. Linda mainly uses semi-precious stones, pearls, and precious metals, but occasionally uses imported Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, and pewter findings. Loudee’s designs are original, and she rarely makes the same design twice. She loves to experiment with beads, so her designs are always evolving.
Loudee’s “Nouveau Victorian” line of complicated, hand-stitched pieces is a contemporary interpretation of Victorian styles with a focus on lace, femininity, and color. The stones are hand-picked for color, quality, texture and uniqueness, and are the inspiration for the intricate designs that take between 10 and 15 hours to complete. All of the hand stitching is done with peyote and brick stitching, and the bead work forms the bezel setting for the stone centerpieces.
