The latest Spotlight Show from Newport’s Yaquina Art Association showcases the jewelry of Linda Cline, pieces inspired by the beauty of the ocean.

“Since the ocean gives me such great inspiration to create sparkling jewelry, I find new possibilities to create endless,” she said.

Cline started making beaded jewelry 15 years ago as a hobby and has since grown her business into almost a full-time career, designing and making all kinds of jewels.

Working mainly in sterling silver and 14k gold, Cline makes everything from earrings to sets of necklaces and bracelets, anklets, watches and stretchy bracelets for both children and adults.

The Spotlight Show will run through July 15 at the gallery, 789 NW Beach Drive, available to view daily from 11 am to 5 pm.
