A locally-based, high-profile jewelry designer is hosting an upcoming event at her Oxford studio. Read on for all the dazzling details.
Known for custom, curated collections of antique-based jewelry, sourcing rare antiques,and working with clients on custom heirloom redesign, Karen Lindner Designs is celebrating its new by-appointment showroom in Oxford with a Sip, Shop & Socialize event.
“The three-day event will feature jewelry, art, and flowers from four local businesses,” says Karen Lindner, Founder and Owner of Karen Lindner Designs. “Along with me, the host, there will be photography by Audra Shields Photography, paintings and sculptures by Carrie Pate, and flowers from Two Little Buds – all of whom will have things available to view and purchase.”
The event is being held at Lindner’s new space at 104 South Beech Street in Oxford, beginning with an evening open house for the community and the Oxford Chamber of Commerce members on Thursday, November 15, from 5-7pm before continuing on November 16 and November 17 from 12-5pm.
Lindner says that through the event, which was inspired by her clients, art friends, and the community, she hopes to help introduce her new space.
“It was my hope to host something that helped introduce my new little space to those who are interested in custom, curated jewelry and antiques, and to let my clients know that I have a location where they can come in and meet with me – especially for custom heirloom redesign and special pieces they are interested in having me design for them,” says Lindner.
Lindner has plenty of experience in designer jewelry. She’s designed for more than 10 years and, in addition to working with retail partners, her work has been showcased on the runway, worn on television show hosts and award shows, music videos, celebrity weddings, and many magazine. “I have worked directly with internationally known designers as well as with top stylists to create celebrity pieces,” she adds.
Some of the clients she’s worked with are high profile, whether it’s with them directly or their stylists. Some of her partnerships began in her second year of business with her association with Miranda Lambert. Lindner’s first job for her was to do her entire wedding party and their own wedding jewelry.
“Later, I worked on music videos, awards shows, and pieces for her private collection,” she says. Other work includes a private collection for Joanna Gaines, a private collection for Long Island Medium Teresa Caputo, and runway shows and retail locations for Anne Barge and Vera Wang.
“My work has also been in national magazines on celebrities that were in feature spreads, and who had my work on via their stylists and copy editors,” says Lindner. “Locally, I have been on the cover and in photo spreads multiple times in Cincinnati Magazine’s Weddings issue.”
