I like pretty things. With a maternal grandmother as a bridal seamstress, and a paternal grandmother as an art teacher, design – color pattern texture – has always been my heartsong. I studied apparel design and worked briefly in the fashion industry as assistant designer for a lingerie company, but a fortuitous introduction to metalsmithing gave me my life’s passion. Since 2007 I’ve been shaping the delicate flowers and sinuous gold ribbons of my dreams into heirloom jewels, and it is with this I-can’t-believe-this-is-my-job joy that we carefully craft each piece in recycled 18K gold and ethically sourced stones at the Megan Thorne Fine Jewels studio in Fort Worth, Texas.
I wear my own great-grandmother’s wedding ring and feel, know, that the true beauty of an object is not just its form, but its story. Pretty things for today, beautiful things for tomorrow.
We are a small but mighty team of makers. Our collection is created, start to finish, in our Fort Worth, TX based studio - no factories, no outsourcing of production.
