Luce Artist Quote

“Many things about jewelry intrigue me: the intimate scale, the considerations of wearability and the personal involvement of the wearer. Juxtapositions of surface pattern and texture provide endless fascination for me.” Artist quoted in “Linda Threadgill,” American Craft, April/May 1987

Luce Artist Biography

Wisconsin-based artist Linda Threadgill remembers the patterned scraps of fabric her mother saved from her sewing. The artist couples this childhood memory with stylized patterns and ornamentation derived from nature. These she expresses through a photoetching process that allows her to create the elaborately etched designs in gold and silver that are her signature.
