Meghan Patrice Riley

"I feel that I'm doing contemporary work that bridges design, fashion, and art. I'm excited and influenced by the materials, themes, and aesthetics represented in these areas and continue my experimentation to create beautifully functional and sculptural collections that find the fashion in art and the art in fashion. "

Each MPR piece is fabricated by hand using sterling silver and gold-filled tubing with nylon-coated steel wire to form the structure. By mixing metals with textile techniques, and classic, elementary materials like miniature bridge cabling with fine metals, MPR reinterprets them to create industrial jewelry that is feminine, luxurious, and alluring.

With a background in math and geometry, MPR creates work inspired by geometric, volumetric forms. She crafts small line segments to create larger forms that she can expand upon, resulting in multi-dimensional forms that are lightweight, flexible, and able to adapt to the wearer.

MPR is a self-taught metalsmith and artist with an academic background in community economic development from UC-Berkeley. Her unique background contributes to the interdisciplinary nature of her work. She has participated in solo art and juried group shows, and has presented her work on the runway at Fashion Week in New York City and Chengdu, China, where she received design and fashion awards.
