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.
