Trinity Rings ATL

Florida’s Linda Bernasconi once worked as a theatrical agent in Chicago, promoting the artistry and talent of others. Then she picked up metal work as a hobby and discovered her own special talent.

The artist: Earned a degree in theatre and worked as a long-time talent agent in Chicago. She started metalwork as a hobby, but as her interest in metal art grew Bernasconi went on to study at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco, Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago and at many metal workshops across the country. She opened her studio in 2007 in the Florida Keys.

The goods: Rings ($20 to $1,100); bracelets ($250 to $1,200); necklaces ($125 to $495) and earrings ($125 to $695).

Materials: 22k gold, fine and sterling silver,14k rose gold, 14k yellow gold and white and black diamonds.

What’s popular: Hand woven rings ($195 to $700) and stacking rings in mixed metals with diamonds ($20 to $375).

Other favorites: Woven bead earrings ($150 to $695) and woven bracelets ($250 to $1,295)

My style: Clean, simple designs that highlight the beauty of the metal, texture, contrast and pattern.
Fun request: My tax attorney once did me a favor, so as a thank you, I hand-pierced 1040 and W2 and made sterling silver cuff links.

Claim to fame: As an agent, I “discovered” Eric Stonestreet of TV’s “Modern Family.”
