Linda Szabo

Linda was born in Valentine, Nebraska in 1955. Her mother is a full-blood Rosebud Sioux, and her father is Irish. Linda is an enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe. While attending high school and college, Linda enrolled in several art classes. She enjoys painting, beadwork, leather work, cross-stitching and drawing. She has always admired fine gold and silver jewelry, especially of Native American design.

She and nationally-known artist/silversmith, Paul Szabo, were married in 1992. Since then, Linda resigned her position as a criminal investigator to work full-time as an apprentice to Paul. She is now designing and creating her own line of silver and gold jewelry, while she assists Paul in his creations. Linda works with Paul in Szabo Studio in Mission, South Dakota on the Rosebud Indian Reservation.
