When creator Debra Feldman designed the linked collection, she sought to celebrate precious connections. She had just lost her husband to Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), a little-known but degenerative brain disease similar in some ways to Parkinson’s Disease and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Her husband was her best friend and despite the sadness, she searched for a way to celebrate the way he lived, and not the way he passed away. When her father recently died after a life-long battle with Multiple Sclerosis, it reignited her passion to create a lasting link to her most cherished memories. Debbie feels that her hand designed jewelry expresses heartfelt emotions and shared experiences giving her, and every woman the opportunity to celebrate the reason for wearing it.
Sharon Rome Reisner was drawn to linked jewelry by her friend Debbie’s story and the idea that everyone is “connected” for a reason. Sharon oversees sales and marketing, inspired by the elegant, yet unique designer jewelry pieces that are made even more distinctive by the eloquent sentiments linked to them.
