There's a palpable wilderness about Linda Smyth, artist/designer of Rabid Fox and Fleathers. A combination of of-this-world and otherness. Her jewelry harnesses the ferocity and exotic beauty as only found in nature. Each design takes on a life of its own. A seemingly innocuous octopus engulfs an entire finger.
