Meet the maker
Welcome to My Vintage Obsession!
Hi, my name is Meagan. I am a Melbourne based artist who creates unique items of jewellery by repurposing vintage and found pieces.
I started making things by hand as a child and have always found myself drawn to objects with lovely shapes, colours and textures.
In 2013 I started to seriously collect vintage costume jewellery. After learning a range of jewellery-making skills working with silver, I became fascinated by the possibilities I could see in some of the broken yet beautiful pieces in my vintage collection. Now I actively search for broken jewellery and unused vintage components to use in my work!
My designs all have a unique story to tell. They are inspired by the pieces I am working with, as well as glimpses of social history from the time they were made. I am proud that my work is sustainable, and enjoy creating modern jewellery with a vintage twist!
I like to think there is a strong sense of whimsy in my work. It makes me happy when people smile on seeing something that I have made.
Recently I was interviewed by vintage costume jewellery expert Hester Fleming of hesterflemingvintage.com as part of her Vintage Style Seeker Series.
