Sister Entrepreneurs Gina & Ivette Talk to Us About Their Jewelry Business, Linx & More!

Linx & More was founded in 1997 by sisters Gina Catan-Eckstein and Ivette Catan-Helfend in Los Angeles, California. These ladies helped pioneer the Italian charm bracelet in the United States, Canada, Australia, The UK and Mexico. They served as the original U.S. distributors for many major Italian brands. The exposure that they generated from People Magazine and their Hollywood clientele was a major catalyst in the growth of the popularity of Italian charm bracelets.

Over time Gina and Ivette saw a need to develop more innovative jewelry which led to the the development of the Linx & More brand and transformed the company from a distributor to that of designer and manufacturer. Innovative new product lines like their latest hit "What is in Your Heat? and "What is in Your Soul?" These modern day glass lockets hold charms that are personalized by inserting charms such as hearts, birthstones, religious symbols, letters, hobby charms, sports charms and much more. This originality has helped the company achieve tremendous growth and has also earned the Linx & More brand a reputation for excellent quality and craftsmanship.Today, their innovation continues as their lines were voted one of the hottest new trends by Specialty Retail Magazine and have received the prestigious Phoenix Award from the San Fernando Valley Business Journal. The sisters and their creations have appeared in NBC TV, Dancing with The Stars, E! and many more. Their creations are worn by celebrities around the world.Time and time again, Linx & More is proving itself as a catalyst in original and creative jewelry design.
