Moonstone Baguette Hinged Bracelet by Meredith Young

Specs: Two bars of diamond baguettes frame a freeform rainbow moonstone crystal on either side. Underneath one corner of the moonstone three baguettes are set into the metal giving the viewer a surprising detail. This 18k white gold bracelet features 2.18 carats of diamonds.

Story: Meredith was wild about working with a torch and metal from the age of 16. Her grandparents’ home in Green Valley, Arizona spurred an early interest in minerals and the lapidary arts. Making jewelry and small metal sculptures offered moments of intimacy and an emotionally charged physicality with an artistic medium. An artist’s ability to facilitate an immediate connection with the viewer’s body, to confound the spatial expectations of the viewer, and to transgress boundaries were of particular interest to Meredith. 

For nearly a decade, she worked in a corporate business development career and designed and created jewelry at night in her studio until 2016 when she took her passion full time, launching her first collections of fine jewelry and one-of-a-kind works of art.
