linhardt to showcase at galerie hilde leiss in germany
I am both thrilled and honored to announce that select Linhardt “Signature” jewelry will be carried by Galerie Hilde Leiss in Hamburg, Germany, starting April 2012.
The moment a former professor introduced me to the work of Hilde Leiss, I felt a deep release of sorts. I felt unusually connected to her big, bold, artful, clever, unusual, POWERFUL… not-just-any-woman’s jewelry. There was something about this woman’s art that spoke to me and truly inspired me. I knew I had to meet this Hilde Leiss because somehow I would “get” her and she would “get” me.
Many moons later when Hilde Leiss walked into my gallery in New York, there was an instant connection. Hilde was dressed with a black cape pinned with a beautiful brooch, with all fingers adorned in the craziest of rings – and somehow 5 minutes into the conversation I felt like we had known each other for quite some time. Alongside Hilde was the ever-charming Wolf Keller, Facilitator of the Galerie, whose energy completely commands and brightens a room. I am delighted to be working with them both on this new venture, which will be to house my work at the Galerie Hilde Leiss on an ongoing basis.
