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”.

The Bead-n-Sisters share, “Chances are we that have met at a bead show on the east coast and we want to take this opportunity to say thank you for your support and inspiration. If we haven’t met yet, we look forward to hearing from you. We really are sisters, one in Florida and 2 in Massachusetts. In 2002, Susan visited a Florida bead shop and strung her first bracelet. Many thanks to Penny Gaulle for the encouragement to continue learning and exploring the beading world.”

He is a hybrid retail/wholesale shop whose minimums are lower than the big box bead shops.  He says he has never sent a package that didn’t have a “little something extra” inside.  He is often left with odd quantities of items that are just hanging around, so why not make his bead family happy?  They might just end up in your next order!  While beads are his product, his goal is total customer satisfaction!  He looks forward to attending the Bead and Button Show as well as True Blue Show in Tucson.  He has many new products to entice bearers of all abilities and styles!
