Who We Are
At an early age I realized that I possesed a creative imagination. Throughout my childhood, I has visions of becoming a famous artist. Growing up in Chicago, I appreciated wondrous works of art, music, architecture and fashion. I chose a safer vocation and did not listen to the inner voice that yearned to create objects of beauty. After 191/2 years of sales and marketing related positions within the telecommunications industry, I was laid off. My safety net vanished three years short of full retirement eligibility. It was through this adverse situation that I was able to pursue a new career direction.
I have created jewelry for over 17 years. I am self taught and often employ unconventional methods to construct my designs. I challenge myself constantly to develop new concepts for the creation of my designs. I often look at objects for what they could be instead of what there are presently. I believe that aesthetic beauty is the visual manifestation of the energy that I put into my design work. It is with this guiding principle that I founded L. Edgar Duff Design. I quickly drew upon my experience in a corporate environment and adopted a mission statement, “Sowing Seeds of Kindness and Beauty.” I positioned “kindness” in front of “beauty” because I believe that kindness is an essential element to true beauty.
I design for both men and women. I am passionate about my work and strive to use it to improve human conditions. I love to create objects of beauty but it is my sincere hope that my work will mean more. I am continually working to broaden my design skills and always looking for new ways to use my work to help others. I humbly share with you my art, my passion, my heart.
