About the Artist

West Seattle artist Johanna Lindsay launched Penguina Designs in 2004 inspired by her goal to create beautiful & wearable jewelry that delights and inspires! Each item is its own work of art and no two pieces are alike.

Johanna's inspirations include classic movie-star glamour, the seasons of the beautiful Pacific Northwest, mid century modernism and her grandmother, whose appreciation for unusual, elegant designs is a reminder that jewelry is meant to bring out our individual beauty.

Materials in Johanna's work include vintage beads, sterling and fine silver, freshwater pearls, semi-precious stones, her own custom designed hand stitched beads & lamp work beads, Czech glass and Austrian crystal.

Seeing a piece of jewelry find its perfect home and the joy it brings to the wearer is her favorite part of the process.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all of our customers near and far!
