Meghan Patrice Riley
Meghan Patrice Riley jewelry was founded in 2009 by designer MPR to create wearable, sculptural jewelry. With a background in math and geometry, the collections are inspired by a thoughtful balance of shape and form. Each piece is crafted by hand in her Brooklyn studio mixing traditional metals with textile techniques. MPR experiments with classic, quotidian materials like industrial ball chain, electrical wire, safety pins to reinterpret them and combine them with fine metals and semi-precious stones to create industrial jewelry that is still retains a femininity and fineness. The resulting collections are about creating a new everyday uniform and appreciating those moments to play dress up.

In her original designs, made with hand-selected materials from around the world, Saskia shares the stories of the places she has visited and makes connections that bring the world a little bit closer together.
