Vintage Linda Levinson Coral Carved Cabochon Brooch
I LOVE anything CORAL and CORAL makes me think of summer....bring it on! I’m ready! 🌞🌴🌞
This is a fabulous Linda Levinson coral carved cabochon brooch with a simple warm gold chain. Her designs are always quirky, interesting and memorable.
Linda graduated from Tulane University and without a clue as what to do after college she started her business in the basement of her parent's suburban home. She chose costume jewelry because it was easier and faster to make than fine jewelry- it was also much less costly to produce. She began with small sample line of hair accessories and earrings. After five years of steady growth (and a move into a Chicago studio space) Linda expanded the hair and jewelry lines into jeweled picture frames and other assorted items for the home.
It has been twenty-eight years since her first hair barrette was sold to a local salon. Since then jewelry, picture frames and hair accessories by Linda Levinson Designs has been sold in the trendiest, coolest and very best speciality stores and boutiques throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Linda's jewelry has been worn by First Ladies of the United States, brides, movie stars, drag queens, prom queens, drama queens, queen bees, wanna b's, runway models, school teachers, baby-sitters, working girls, sorority girls, mothers and teenagers!
Each piece is designed by Linda in Chicago. She then sends her drawings to model makers in Rhode Island. These craftsmen take the design and carve by hand a wax or metal model. After the prototype is complete all pieces are hand cast then plated in Rhode Island and sent back to the Chicago studio for hand setting of stones and finishing.
