Meredith's Profile

About

Raven's Craving Jewelry Studio is the hobby-turned-profession for 29 year old Meredith Steele, a Graphic Design graduate from the Art program at The University of Wisconsin in Madison. Meredith has been dipping her fingers into different media her whole life, from painting, to writing poetry and short stories, sculpture, photography, printmaking, digital art, papercrafting, sewing, and jewelry design.

When Meredith got her dream job at a local bead store, during college, she realized her potential as a jewelry designer and beader. It was a great place to let loose her creativity stores that were not being used up by her rigorous and demanding school projects. When she isn't working at the bead store, Meredith loves to be at home creating jewelry, sewing, making cards, and doing freelance graphic design and photography. Apart from etsy, she also sells her jewelry at art and craft fairs…

Meredith remembers visiting a bead shop in the town that she grew up in, as young as 7 or 8 years old. It all began there, and her knowledge of beading and jewelry making continues to grow at a pace much faster than she had ever imagined. Meredith can do lots of different kinds of beading, including wire working and earring making, bead stringing, bead knotting, multi-strand bracelets/necklaces, and bead weaving (including peyote and herringbone/ndbele). She has even begun to dabble in fabric jewelry!

One of Meredith's favorite things to do is to find a piece in an expensive jewelry catalog, one they are selling for hundreds of dollars, and make something even better for fractions of the price. Some of her favorite jewelry pieces have sprung to life in that manner.
