Linda Shull has a lifelong love of jewelry and design. Her fascination with jewelry started at the age of 2 when she started her collection. Her passion grew and inspired her to explore the art of metalsmithing for jewelry. Her fascination and skill with fusing glass then led her to combine the two media into the work she now creates.
Shull’s work incorporates her own handmade fused dichroic art glass with sterling silver in whimsical and fun patterns. She uses the kinetic qualities of dichroic glass to create depth, movement and intensity. Each glass piece is unique because Linda continuously experiments with her medium, adding metals and crushed glass to her kiln-fired pieces. She has developed a special technique in assembling the glass for fusing.
Over the years her jewelry has been showcased internationally in art galleries and museum stores including Freehand Gallery in West Hollywood and the Museum of Neon Art in Downtown Los Angeles. She has been the featured jewelry artist at the Grand Central Art Center at California State University at Fullerton. In April 2003 she exhibited in the California Glass Exchange Annual Symposium on Art Glass in Fullerton, California.
Shull wants her jewelry to give people joy and amusement in their daily lives. The unique creativity she expresses through her glass is sure to bring smiles to both the wearer of her pieces and the casual observer.
