MAIDEN VOYAGE is handcrafted by jeweler and designer Megan Rugani. Gold is the preferred metal Megan employs for its physical properties of warmth and reflection. Using this medium, she explores techniques to emulate the faceting of gemstones to capture the way light grabs our attention. With this stylistic method as the theme throughout her collection, Megan also employs the use of symbology to sentimentalize her work with her own introspective, meditative and emotional experiences. Esoteric concepts of impermanence, mysticism, death, rebirth and antiquity are expressed in the modern language of divine femininity. Megan's jewelry focuses on the visceral and existential but anchors itself in the utilitarian with its simplicity in shape and robust structure and design.
