Linda Delgado is the Owner of Bits & Pieces Jewelry that specializes in custom jewelry. In working with the Southeast Colorado Small Business Development Center (SBDC), Linda recently relocated her business to La Junta. "Rachel Patrick, Southeast Colorado SBDC Director, has been my fount of information. She has tirelessly worked on my behalf, making sure I have every available opportunity to improve my business, through education, marketing, networking and possible grant opportunities. I will continue to rely on her expertise,” Linda stated. Linda began in the industry in the summer of 1976. Her first job was cutting stones, cabochon and custom inlay. She worked with a lot of turquoise, jasper, mother of pearl, malachite and the like, in sterling silver. She was then given the opportunity to learn to work with gold and jumped at the chance. She loved it instantly! “It's cleaner, more forgiving and polishes easier,” Linda explained. After she learned this, she started doing wholesale repairs for jewelry stores. “That is basically all I have ever done. I did try twice to 'get a real job', neither worked out for even a year. I shudder at the memory. I love what I do, it's why I still do it,” Linda said with a smile. Each piece Linda creates is completely unique to you and your story.
