MeridianStudio's Profile

About

Meridian Line Studio was formed in the U.K. but is now based in Oregon.

I have had a passion for art ever since I can remember and find that making one of a kind pieces of wearable art is a wonderful means of expressing creativity. I create my jewellery in the same way I paint, I have no preconceived idea before I begin. I surround myself with colour and texture and somehow it all seems to come together.

I have always been termed as artsy fartsy by my friends. My passion when I was younger was poetry. I started writing when I was nine or ten, however I haven't written anything lately (hey, neither has Shakespear). I got into jewellery making not long after I was married but set it aside after my daughter was born in hot pursuit of encaustic (which I still love to do). I have taken up jewellery making again in more recent times…

I got into jewellery making not long after I was married but set it aside after my daughter was born in hot pursuit of encaustic (which I still love to do). I have taken up jewellery making again in more recent times and it seems to have evolved considerably. I am loving working with silver and hope to improve in leaps and bounds.

I love fish n chips and just about anything chocolate. I love to dance, I can't sing, I love to read, I love the BBC !!!

Hope you all enjoy my little shop and get in touch if you want to chat.

Capturing Nature with Liquid Silver

"Well, okay, maybe not liquid, but certainly squishy silver. Today's feature is about another Etsy artisan, Marina McCarran, a.k.a. Meridian Studio. She creates amazing, organic snapshots of nature that you can wear! She creates these beauties using real leaves, petals, and other objects from nature and combines them with colorful semiprecious stones. Rather than making a mold and casting these natural pieces over and over again, her work is as unique as nature, because she picks her petals and uses them directly to create her forms using precious metal clay and paste."


Cheers.
