Linda Minor, designer and owner of Bead Me. Linda designs handcrafted one of a kind metal gemstone jewelry.  She is a  a member of the North Carolina Society of Goldsmiths. She held buyer positions at several major department stores.

Linda's originally designed jewelry was a featured gift chosen to present to First Lady Michelle Obama and can be seen alongside bead supplies, women's accessories, art and other fine locally handmade gifts in her gallery. Her collection is available at the Harvey B Gantt Center and other specialty shops. Bring in your clothing and Linda will design the perfect earrings, bracelet or necklace to accent and complete you fashionable look.

She uses classic pearls, semi-precious gemstones, swarovski crystals, larimar, coral, turquoise, tourmaline, various beads and other materials to create classic designs with high fashion twist.

Linda recognizes that purchasing jewelry is a "want" and not a "need". Her priority is to provide you with what you want.  Linda uses copper colored solder in her designs.

Environmentally, copper is one of the friendliest metals around. Copper never goes bad - it can be recycled over and over again. It actually has the highest recycling rate of any engineering metal in the world. Copper also functions as a defense against germs - because it is naturally biostatic, bacteria growth is inhibited on its surface. Many hospitals install copper or copper-alloy doorknobs, push panels and other hardware to protect against the transfer of disease.
