Each piece of MeritMade jewelry is crafted from sterling silver or gold. I use traditional metalsmithing techniques combined with a modern and minimal design aesthetic. You will often find unique stones, fossils or found materials used as centerpieces that reflect a scientific and childlike curiosity.
Doing something the hard way is not the fastest method and obviously not the easiest. When done intentionally, doing something the hard way can produce the most satisfying, honored, and treasured items in our lives.
Our contemporary society is flooded with mass produced and disposable jewelry. MeritMade strives to provide an alternative. I strongly believe in quality over quantity. I believe that design can be beautiful, classic, and reverent to the materials. I believe in creating future heirlooms that are meant to be worn and loved.
Thank you for reading more about MeritMade, for choosing the sustainable route, and supporting the tradition of skilled work.
