Nancy Linkin, a jewlery designer based in Camden, Maine, died on June 28, 2019 of breast cancer. She was 64. Nancy was a long-time SNAG member.
Nancy attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She later received a Masters degree at Washington University in St. Louis where she studied under Heikki Seppa and learned anticlastic forming. She opened her own business, Nancy Linkin Fine Jewelry & Sculpture, in Maine. For over 30 years she sent her work to galleries around the United States.
