Meet Linda McEathron, Owner of Design House Jewelry Studio


Linda McEathron is the owner of Design House Jewelry Studio. She opened the studio more than 18 years ago with just her bench and one small jewelry cabinet, and she now has 35 years of experience and counting as a goldsmith. Starting her business came from a love of what she does and a desire to lead by example, especially for her son. She strives every day to show him the value in working hard and pursuing your passions.

Linda describes herself as a hippie at heart, and her creative and passionate side blossomed during her childhood in California. While her family was military and instilled strong values, structure, and work ethic in her life, she also grew up on the beaches of California exploring the freedom of the 60’s. A perfect day for Linda would include early morning studio time, coffee, and music (usually Miranda Lambert). With her sketchbook in hand and a bench full of beautiful stones of all shapes and sizes, there is nothing she can’t accomplish. 


The new Design House studio in downtown Waco has the perfect view. From Linda’s bench, she can see joggers, dog walkers, tourists, and families heading out on an adventure for the day. It inspires her to see downtown Waco blossoming, and truly brings her joy. Her team begins the day with brainstorming, coffee, and Dr. Pepper, and customers fill the rest of the day with repairs and questions about custom designs and engagement rings. She cultivates a positive and supportive environment for her employees, to show them that amazing things can happen when individual talents are encouraged. She has seen her team flourish because of this, and her favorite thing about being a business owner is the opportunity to encourage other women to develop and pursue their passions. Linda has brought creativity and inspiration to so many lives, creating wearable memories for a moment in time.
