Meet the Class of 2014 Who’s Who Women in Ecommerce™ Linda Blatchford, President LinorStore Jewelry
Women want jewelry, Jewish jewelry and wire beaded headcoverings (kippot) to wear everyday, and also to celebrate special occasions in their lives. Linda Blatchford handcrafts jewelry and kippah designs that create memories of lifecycle events that girls and women will remember each time the piece is worn. Her jewelry designs are for (Jewish) holidays, special events such as weddings, gift giving, and everyday wear. Women and men purchase fun, unique Jewish holiday jewelry and headcoverings (for their wives).
Linda started creating bracelets with a group at a Sisterhood (Jewish) event about 10 years ago and recalls playing with plastic beads and lanyards as a child and remembered how fun it was to finish her own creation. And, it was so relaxing. So, she purchased gemstones and began creating chakra and gemstone jewelry. After her adult bat mitzvah, Linda chose to connect her celebration of Judaism with her jewelry designs and began to specialize in Judaica jewelry and beaded wire kippahs. She is mainly self taught, having taken only a few classes in wire wrapping.
“The idea is to feel the joy in accessorizing an outfit by wearing a necklace, bracelet and earrings set that you can’t buy in a big-box store or see on other women. You can wear a different colored wire kippah for different seasons or to match different outfits. Jewish women no longer have to wear a doily on their heads.” Visit her online at www.LinorStore.com Follow her on Social: www.facebook.com/LinorStore , www.Pinterest.com/lindab142 ,www.twitter.com/lindab142 and www.instagram.com/lindab142
