Meghan Patrice Riley

Pop Top Earrings

Materials: Sterling silver and flexible nylon-coated stainless steel

Dimensions: 3" x 3"

I experiment with quotidian materials like miniature bridge cabling, industrial ball chain, electrical wire, safety pins, and findings mixed with fine metals to reinterpret them to create collections that are industrial but feminine and wearable.

About the Artist:

Meghan Patrice Riley jewelry was founded in 2009 by designer MPR to create light and wearable sculptural jewelry. With a background in math and geometry, each piece is inspired by volumetric forms and is crafted by hand in her New York City studio.

"I feel that I am doing contemporary work that bridges design, fashion, and art fields. I experiment with quotidian materials like miniature bridge cabling, industrial ball chain, electrical wire, safety pins, and findings mixed with fine metals to reinterpret them to create collections that are industrial but feminine and wearable. I continue my experimentation to create beautiful and functional, sculptural collections that find the extraordinary in the ordinary."
