Oh, The West Virginia Hills ~ How Majestic and How Grand!
“Take Me Home, Country Roads”
West Virginia – WOW – she has it all!! From spectacular mountains waiting to be hiked to beautiful rivers waiting to be fished…..to little towns with funky names like Big Ugly, Looneyville, and Left Hand. West Virginia is also home to so many amazing artists – like our own Artist of the Month – Linda Sinish. Linda designs and handcrafts wire and metal jewelry from her studio located in the Appalachian Mountains near Blackwater Falls. Have you seen the falls……what an amazing piece of Mother Nature’s artwork they are!
Linda’s earrings are beautiful and popular. She uses copper wire that is oxidized to give it an antique look. They are light weight – but make a statement – just what jewelry is supposed to do! As you know……The Vintage Lady is committed to American Artists…..and especially West Virginia Artists – like our friend Linda!
