Exclusive Silent Auction Items
18k Yellow Gold Pendant by Meredith Young Jewelry
Meredith Young is creating a custom pendant in matte and high polish 18k yellow gold with 1.5 ctw of white diamonds and a 14" to 16" chain. A talisman that evokes energy and movement, texture and bezels vibrant from the center of this medallion.
Meredith was wild about working with a torch and metal from the age of 16. Making jewelry and small metal sculptures offered moments of intimacy and an emotionally charged physicality with an artistic medium. In college she studied Art History, English and French at the University of Georgia, concentrating in sculpture and contemporary installation art. Upon graduation, Meredith reverted back to "making art," filling her evenings and weekends with metalsmithing classes and workshops. You can view examples of her work on the left.
