About the artist
Meryl Shapiro creates handmade designed relics evoking and blending the ancient and contemporary. Her hand-worked jewelry recalls worldwide influences, imbuing each piece with a primitive yet refined elegance. More of an artist than a designer, each piece is spontaneous, a work in progress until it has reached its fullest potential. Her singular aesthetic is found in both her jewelry and artwork, which influence one another and are developed in tandem. Meryl Shapiro is an artist and jeweler living and working in New York City.
