Kiel Mead Jewelry
Looking at Kiel Mead‘s jewellery collection is like sifting through a middle school kid’s desk at school in the 1970s, only gold-plated.The feeling of the collection is very retro-chic, new-age charm bracelet if you will, and will leave many with the same feelings you have thinking back on pleasant memories with grandma, or on your first day of high school.
Reading Mead’s biography is like scanning character profiles from Rent. Mead hails from Fredonia, a small town in Chautauqua County, located in the south-western corner of New York State. But this small town boy grew to be a big fish in a little pond, and eventually graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NYC, and moved on to tackle the big city’s art scene.
Thus far, his most successful pieces have included the famous “Forget-me-not Ring,” and other lower-profile bits like the “Retainer Necklace” and the “Freck Specs,” which are all featured as part of the Future Perfect project.
