Linda La Touche
Originally from Union City, Linda moved to Oakland during her college years and immediately loved the city’s diversity, spirit and energy. Linda first discovered her “need to bead” in high school during preparation for senior prom when she couldn’t find the perfect earrings to accessorize her custom dress. Using remnants of that dress, she made her first pair of earrings and four years later La Touche Designs was born. By repurposing everyday objects into beautiful adornments, La Touche Designs allows for the ‘bending of ones mind’ around objects’ typical purposes. La Touche Designs offers its collections with a hope of invoking joy, laughter, and a deeper level of appreciation for the creative ability that is always within one’s reach.
Linda’s work will be featured at the Rare Bird on Thursday, September 20, 2012. Click here for more information on the Rare Bird September event.
