Linda Van Niekerk

The natural beauty of Tasmania as well as the aesthetcis of her native South Africa inspires Linda’s jewellery designs. A sense of place is evident in her wearable sculpture, which often combines silver with Tasmanian elements like driftwood, turned precious timbers and pebbles.

Linda has exhibited in galleries across Australia, won the Tasmanian Design Award in 2010, and in 2012 and 2014 she presented her work at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. “As always, it is my desire that the works embody a simple elegance that sits well on the body and encourages the wearer to be bold, proud and walk tall.”
