meraki [may-rah-kee] (adjective) This is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put “something of yourself” into what you're doing.
Each Meraki Jewellery Design piece is hand crafted by Cape Town-based designer, Megan Keyser. She completed her degree in Jewellery Design and Manufacture at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology in 2012. Meraki Jewellery Design was formed at the start of 2013.
Using raw stones, Sterling Silver and recycled Brass, Megan creates delicate, timeless pieces that draw inspiration from geometric forms in nature, her travels and an appreciation for well made objects and heirlooms. Meraki jewellery pieces range from playful to effortlessly elegant, always with a subtle, sophisticated edge. Each piece is designed to age with grace and serves as an affirmation of each wearer's personal style.
Every piece of jewellery is hand made with care and given special attention to detail, embracing natural imperfections of the hand at work and staying true to the beauty of the materials used. Megan offers a bespoke service specializing in custom designed and hand crafted commitment, engagement and wedding rings. Each and every piece is carefully manufactured by Megan in her Cape Town studio.
