With the thrill of spring in the air, and fresh Magnolia blossoms scenting the air at the gallery's window, we are all looking forward to the upcoming 2012 season which is beginning now. Lynda is busy creating her lovely gold braided wedding bands and Bill has been undaunted in his pursuit of filling the gallery with new pieces. It is like Christmas with many boxes and packages to be opened and put on the walls and shelves as we "oooooo'' and "ahhhhh" over so many fine pieces of art and glassware and numerous "made in Maine" items coming in weekly. We are excited with our new awareness of Pinterest and how much we enjoy seeing the orders come in through Etsy and our website as we are getting global interest in our Maine gallery. Looking forward to seeing you all stop by!

Fearful we would not have enough tomatoes this year, Bill planted no less than 36 plants! Now we are picking everyday in 7 different varieties. Even this funny little one that looks like he has a hat!
Our screen porch is table is covered with great colors and delicious flavors. Many customers have been seen walking out with a sampling!
Come in for a taste of tomatoes!
Harvest Gold Jewelers Lynda Rasco and Bill Rudd are showing their beautiful jewelry at the Gallery for the 15th season in Center Lovell.
Lynda and Bill started their jewelry company in 1985. They were living on Knight’s Hill Road with their new baby and Lynda was making jewelry in the basement. Bill was a chef at that time in Fryeburg at the Oxford House Inn. After his son was born Bill decided that he would be able to spend more time with his family if he joined the jewelry business with Lynda.
He started with the sales. The first day he brought home a bottle of champagne to celebrate his success. Of course the wine cost more than the profit!
He learned quickly both from Lynda who grew up making jewelry in Lincoln, MA and from his jeweler friends. Bill attended Haystack Mountain School of Arts and Crafts to learn from Heike Seppa the raising technique he uses to make his flexible gold cuffs.
Being a creative person, Bill took his new skills to design and fabricate a gold cuff that won an award for American goldsmithing in 1987. Together they created a line of wearable gold jewelry that would be sold in some of the finest galleries and jewelry stores in America.
26 years later, the kids are grown and Lynda and Bill run a beautiful American made fine art and craft gallery in Center Lovell. The jewelry line has expanded to include sterling silver as seen on Carley, their daughter. Lynda has been busy stringing tourmaline and other gemstone beads and pearls into lovely.
They specialize in recycling old gold into new pieces that can be worn and enjoyed for generations to come. You can bring your old gold to the Gallery and recycle it into something that you can wear everyday. Remembering the person who maybe worn it as a wedding band or earrings before you and thinking about who may wear it in the future.
Stop by and see their fine jewelry at the Harvest Gold Gallery on Route 5 in Center Lovell, open daily. 207-925-6502 and always on the web www.harvestgoldgallery.com

Yankee Magazine recently voted our Gallery in Center Lovell Maine, the best gallery with a view! We certainly love our view and it's great to know others do too! The view looks lovely during all of our New England seasons. The mountains have inspired us as jewelers as seen in our mountain range rings and we even had a couple get married in our beautiful setting! If you fancy getting out for a lovely drive through the back roads of Maine, come visit us, soak in the view, check out the artwork in our Gallery and look at our always evolving custom jewelry! A big thank you to Yankee Magazine!
