Meander Works creates beautiful, socially and environmentally responsible jewelry

I’m Marilyn Brogan and I’m the owner, maker, designer and curator of Meander Works. I began my art career amongst the Blue Ridge Mountains in my home state of Virginia. Starting at Virginia Commonwealth University in their highly acclaimed sculpture program, I continued my studies as a Core Student at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina where I fell in love with metalworking.

After the Core fellowship I followed my passion, and a boy, across the country to sunny San Diego where we lived and worked for almost 10 years. In early 2016, the boy (now my husband) and our little dog Leon, moved to the Forgotten Coast of Florida. It's a quiet, beautiful, place and a welcome change for this country mouse :)

I use reclaimed materials from reputable suppliers to be certain they don't harm the earth or the people who work with them. When you buy from Meander Works, I want you to feel good knowing you have a high quality piece of consciously constructed jewelry, meticulously designed and made specifically with you in mind.

Frequently asked questions

Do you create custom jewelry?

I love working with clients to create custom jewelry! If you see an item in this shop that you would like in a different metal, created with a different stone, need in a size not listed please contact me with your request and we will get started!
If you have an idea for a fully custom piece, unrelated to items available in this shop, please contact me with your idea.
Custom work is my specialty!

Sizing details

To avoid delays and extra fees it is extremely important to order the correct ring size. We recommend visiting more than one jewelry store to have your finger properly measured. Be sure to mention to the width of the ring you intend to purchase when getting sized - there are different widths of ring sizers and this can effect the accuracy. Please keep in mind that some rings can not be resized.
