J Lynn Brofman studied jewelry making and repair then apprenticed with a small manufacturer before opening her own design studio in 2002. Her work draws on the graceful simplicity of natural forms as well as the geometric shapes popularized by mid-century Scandinavian design. Lynn creates sterling silver earrings and pins – her gingko motifs are particular favorites with local collectors. She employs a fold forming technique – following the metal’s particular characteristics to determine shape – to make cuff bracelets.
A former nurse, Lynn is a Denver native who now lives and works in Minneapolis.
