Meet the Owner of MeanderWorks

Marilyn Brogan

owner, maker, designer, curator

I’m Marilyn Brogan and I’m the owner, maker, designer and curator of Meander Works. The woman behind the 1-woman studio, 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 I opened up shop on Etsy. There I sold prints of drawings made at our kitchen table, and a few 2-D pieces that helped me accumulate the equipment and fundamental tools I needed to build a home studio. Eventually, a few pieces of jewelry made their way onto Etsy and in 2010, I was able to move my workspace from our home to a beautiful rooftop studio that was once the piano bar of a historic hotel.

Now my jewelry is created in a room permeated by sunlight and replete with calm, where I can focus and dedicate myself to my craft. For inspiration, I’ve filled my studio with a lot of cacti and succulents, as well as small collections of rocks, shells and tree debris from my daily walks, which influence many of my designs.

I believe that fine jewelry should be a work of art, not mass-produced. That’s why all of my work is shaped, soldered and polished by my own hands, so that when you purchase a piece, you know you have something made just for you. Each piece I create is made from raw materials and is done individually to ensure that every one is unique.
I am a proud member of Ethical Metalsmiths and 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.
