about - Lynne Green, Saint Louis, MO
In 1998, the road turned for me. After a lifetime in the creative fields of writing, stage directing and documentary video, an unexpected permanent disability challenged me to reinvent myself. With the generous help of Vocational Rehabilitation and the support of a handful of exceptional friends, I was able to develop new strengths, learn new skills and gradually regain independence.
Designing jewelry and photography have become my two new mediums for self-expression. When working with stones, I love the immediacy of using my hands to build an object of my imagination; love holding the tangible results. It's breathtaking to witness someone wearing something I passionately poured my heart into and I hope you will find beauty and joy in my work, too.
I primarily use gemstones, Swarovski crystals and sterling silver as the base for my designs. Although each component may be beautiful, I believe it's more about the relationship of the materials, rather than the materials themselves that imbue the piece with magic.
When shooting images for my greeting cards and prints, my first love is botanicals. My work has been purchased by the Missouri Botanical Garden for sale in their gift shop; by Paraquad Independent Living Center for their permanent gallery; and I was also commissioned to do photos for the set of tv's remake of "Rear Window," starring Christopher Reeve.
Customer satisfaction is of primary importance to me, so if you are displeased with any aspect of your purchase, I will do my best to resolve it or refund your money in full.
I live with my support dog, Hank, in St. Louis.
