The New York City–based designer turns out sturdy sculptural styles in responsibly sourced metals that are bold and lyrical
Jill-of-all-trades Lisa Linhardt has parlayed professional careers in dance, graphic design, and photography into her eight-year-old jewelry design business, Linhardt Design. While taking jewelry instruction from the Fashion Institute of Technology, Revere Academy, Taos School of Metalsmithing and Lapidary Design, and private tutelage with James Binnion and Michael Good, she created pieces in the basement of her house and started selling them to strangers met on the subway. Her signature style is sculptural and lyrical—as if a melody took shape or the movements of dancers were captured in miniature. All pieces are cast or fabricated in the U.S. in platinum, sterling silver, or Fairmined 18k gold, with Linhardt and outside bench artists bringing pieces to life.
