In every artist there lives many buried layers. September through June, 8am-3pm, Linda shapes young minds as a middle school computer teacher. Says Linda, “my left-brain, not to mention my patience, is sorely taxed. After 4pm, my mind shifts into the right hemisphere. That is when I create my jewelry, ceramics, and stained glass.”

McClure majored in art in college for three years before she decided that she wanted more stability and switched to teaching. She has had years of training in metalworking, ceramics, stained glass, and all manner of painting. “I have painted and created since I was very young. As I have gotten older, my creative side has grown to a point where it just cannot be contained, hence the creation of Amethyst Craft,” says Linda McClure.

“I am eclectic in my creativeness. My creations are never the same. I focus on wearable art. I have been told repeatedly that my designs are very different from what is out there, and people respond very favorably to my art. My jewelry has evolved into what it is today. I have been using watch parts since the beginning and I am always trying to find new ways to put unusual item together into a unified, attractive piece of jewelry.”
