Exclusive Christine Marguerite Designs for Artfully Elegant

March 22nd, 2013

Located in Boulder, Colorado, Christine Marguerite Designs is a custom design retail jewelry studio, led by owner/designer Linda Kozloff-Turner.  With over 38 years of experience in jewelry design, Linda has created lines for the likes of Tommy Bahama and Canadian clothing designer Linda Lundstrom.  The name Christine Marguerite has deep emotional ties to Linda; in fact, it was the name on her birth certificate before she was given up for adoption by her mother, a Blackfoot Indian. Both spiritual and naturalistic, Linda holds the environment in high regard, and uses only non-mined precious metals, recycled to minimize the environmental impact of traditional mining practices, and all of her diamonds, like all the artists we carry at Artfully Elegant, are conflict-free. Linda often creates custom wedding and engagement bands specific to that couple’s love story; one line, known as “The Meaningful,” showcases rings created out of the same piece of metal for both bride and groom! We are fortunate to be carrying an exclusive line from Christine Marguerite Designs here at Artfully Elegant.  Linda used the twelve common birthstones to inspire a pair of earrings and a necklace for each month of the year.  My personal favorites are these stunning December earrings (pictured on left). The turquoise nuggets and hammered silver add an organic texture to the smooth Tahitian pearls.  The November earrings (pictured on right), with their large hammered gold fill component, swiss blue topaz briolettes, and Tahitian pearls are also show-stoppers. Check out Christine Marguerite Design’s page on our website, or stop by in store to see even more of her fantastic birthstone inspired work.
