Darleen Meier has been involved in fashion and design since a tender age. She is a native of Nevada, and grew up in a family chock-full of talent in art and music. Darleen had flair for fashion design, and her mother encouraged her to cultivate this gift.
As a young adult, Darleen moved to New York to pursue a career in fashion. Her artistic talents continued to evolve, and eventually she gravitated toward jewelry in a unique combination of wire wrapping, chain and precious stones. Her pieces had a singular mystique, and insatiable demand soon compelled a choice between her passion for jewelry and her career with a major NY accessories design firm.
Darleen's jewelry features 14k gold-filled or sterling silver metals charmed by precious or semi-precious stones, all hand picked for cut and clarity. She names her jewelry after family, friends and icons, infusing an exclusive ethos into each piece. Her designs feature intricate wire architecture fused with vibrant gems, turquoise and coral in diacritic clasps and findings. Her designs beguile the glamour girl in all of us, but they also possess a fresh boldness that embodies the modern woman.
