Linda Velleco, the owner of Marblehead Jewelry has a passion for jewelry and has been creating beautiful handmade pieces for over 17 years. My interest in jewelry began when my family and I lived in Rome.

Inspiration was everywhere - from Bulgari on Via dei Condotti to the little old goldsmith on Via di Bocca di Leone who made my beautiful gold band to the Museo di Villa Giulia which has the most amazing collection of Etruscan and ancient Roman jewelry.

I design and create necklaces, bracelets and earrings using only the finest quality precious and semi-precious gemstone beads and pearls.

My designs are also influenced by two very special places - Marblehead MA, where I live and Portofino Italy, my home away from home.
