Linda Lee Johnson Boy and Girl Pendant at Barneys New York

You’ve worked hard and now it’s time to treat yourself. That’s right, it’s time to get hammered. No, not THAT kind of hammered, you silly girl. Hammered gold jewelry is what we’re talking about and there is no better designer than Linda Lee Johnson. Johnson’s designs offer a fresh, bold perspective on gold jewelry, utilizing the hammering technique to provide a subtle yet striking texture to her designs. These are sculpturally beautiful pieces and they make for artful and attention-getting accessories. We’re particularly fond of the Boy and Girl Pendant, a Cubist-type design that is reminiscent of the old “Best Friends” necklaces from your youth. The design contains four diamonds on a 16” chain, a perfectly simple statement piece.
