Lynda Turek-Koehler, Jewelry Artist And Instructor, Presents Original Designs Inspired By Nature And Life

The Rickie Report celebrates the wearable artistry of jewelry designer Lynda Turek-Koehler. While she lives and works locally, her one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces have been worn to the White House!  Lynda teaches jewelry making classes at the Jupiter Community Center during the school year and offers private as well as group lessons specializing in pearl stringing, silver smithing and chain making.  Lynda’s wearable art pieces are currently on display at Harbourside Place in Jupiter.  We share the details and some photos of her intricate designs.

Each original piece of jewelry that Lynda Turek-Koehler creates shares components found in nature, at the ocean or in a mine.  She tells The Rickie Report, “I upcycle, repurpose items and go digging for gems!  By using shells, pearls and gems, I create unusual one-of-a-kind designs”.
