This Fashionista and Independent Jewelry Designer received her BFA in Fashion Design from Otis Parsons College of Art and Design, in Los Angeles, and hit the ground running. In 2006, she worked as an Assistant Designer at a corporate fashion house. Discouraged by the lack of room for creativity that comes with working for such a large company, she ventured out as a stylist for Photo and Commercial shoots. After spending five years in Los Angeles, a true Bay Area girl, she was ready to take her fashion sense and stubborn-will north. Meggie, a girl that has always found freedom by the water, caught the creative wave again and began designing her unique, beach-inspired jewelry. Tools in hand, this do-it-herself girl spent two years promoting and selling her jewelry in order to save money to start building her dream. In 2008, Meggie visited her sister in New York and she found herself reading a magnet on the refrigerator over and over. The magnet simply said, “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined” (Henry David Thoreau). With the support of her loving family and those powerful words in mind, the journey of .meggie. san francisco began. She opened her retail location on the iconic Union Street in San Francisco that year. During the next six years on Union St, she fell back in love with her high school sweetheart, got married and had two babies! In 2014, with that quote still guiding her thoughts, she turned all of her focus back to her delicate and timeless handmade jewelry line...which is now expanding into boutiques across the country! Her line is gorgeous and dainty, simple and perfect alone or styled up by layering multiple pieces together. She hopes you enjoy your jewelry as much as she loves creating it!
