Lynda Hoff Mellin is a Lexington working artist. Lynda holds a degree in fine art from the University of Kentucky where she majored in painting which is still her first love.
Inspired by the Covid lockdown and the need to create smaller more manageable work Lynda began to explore colorful necklaces. She has chosen to mix earthy hand-cast African beads with Murano glass from aristocratic Venice resulting in unusual yet pleasing harmonies. Other combinations, in what is still a new and exploratory endeavor, have glass, bone, stone and charms strung together in successful compatibility.
