Linda Penwarden’s jewellery embodies her passion for hands-on artistry as well as her empathic understanding of her clients. From her staple collection to highly personalized, custom pieces, Linda’s creative process begins with her customer. This unique perspective, coupled with her talent as a designer and jewellery-maker, allows Linda and her small, local team to create quality jewellery that is intimate, elegant and uniquely expressive.
After studying fine art at the Ontario College of Art and formally training as a goldsmith at George Brown College, Linda opened Linda Penwarden Jewellery in 2003, located in the quiet Toronto enclave of Mount Pleasant. Her store has earned Linda a strong local reputation for providing timeless, elegant and unique jewellery designs. Her staff are a select team of knowledgeable experts who share Linda’s passion.
Linda’s signature style is modern and imaginative, playing homage to the natural hues and textures of precious gemstones and metals. Her designs represent a distillation of many styles. Everything superfluous is stripped away, leaving the beauty of form and colour to sing for themselves.
Custom designs represent a unique collaboration between Linda, her team and the customer. Linda and her staff have the talent and in-depth technical knowledge to guide clients through the design process and realize a vision together. A Linda Penwarden custom piece is one to be treasured for a lifetime.
Linda and her team work only with diamonds that are either Canadian or conflict-free and all design and benchwork is performed in the workshop located above her store. 90% of all work is done in-house, with remaining processes completed locally in Toronto. Linda closely oversees her team’s work, from wax moulds to actual benchwork, while she concentrates on designs and collection concepts. This intimate process ensures a finished product of the highest standards, manufactured locally, ethically and with integrity.
