Love for Adventure, Appreciation for Art
When Linda Sexton began traveling to Asia to accompany her husband on his business travels she felt an instant connection to the people, and natural beauty of a place so far from her home in South Carolina. Linda was taken with the surroundings, but also the majestic artistry of native pearl jewelry.
With her artistic eye and appreciation for quality craftsmanship, Linda began collecting a coterie of designer artisan jewelry and accessories to remind her of her adventures and complement her elegant style.
Style Ambassador, Trailblazing Entrepreneur
Linda’s new wardrobe adornments grabbed the attention of many of her friends back home. Everyone wanted their own unique piece from Linda’s travels. With a new mission to find baubles and gems for these eager customers, Linda began her journey into bringing the beautiful pearls and unique metals to the American Market.
Linda developed a network of clients across North America, and these initial customers and fans continue to inspire her to bring back new, high quality designs to adorn these independent-minded women.
Wisdom of Pearls, Generational Bonds
Linda’s desire to learn as much as she could about these treasures led her on an adventure deep into many far eastern countries to discover what made these ancient settlements the home to some of the most beautiful pearls in the world. Over the past 20 years, Linda has cultivated relationships with some of the most admired pearl farmers and distributors in the Pacific Rim.
Her desire to create a collection of jewelry based on her own love of wearing timeless and versatile pieces that tell a story has kept her constantly discovering beautiful elements. Linda’s vision has become a family affair both with the network of artisans abroad, and her own family in South Carolina who now share in her passion for discovery.
