There are some people who always knew what they wanted to do when they grew up. They have a passion or a dream, and unlike so many of us, they stick to it until it becomes a reality. Lindy Kavanaugh is that type of person. As a young girl she would sit for hours and watch a local shop owner craft and repair jewelry. Lindy eventually went to work as a bench jeweler at that very same shop in her hometown of Fernandina Beach, and then opened her own store.

After attending college at UNF, she moved to New York City and enrolled in the Gemological Institute of America, where she earned her Graduate Gemologist degree. After four years working in the big city at one of the world’s premiere jewelry stores, she decided to strike out on her own. In 2001, she opened her own jewelry shop in Fernandina Beach. Aptly called Lindy’s, the shop is warm and inviting. Lindy says she wanted shopping in her store to feel like you are at a friend’s house, sifting through her jewelry box. The store feels more like a charming boutique than a formal jewelry store, yet each of the showcases glitter with elegant high-end jewelry.
