Meraki [may-rah-kee] (adjective). 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.

Cape Town design studio Meraki Jewellery Design has launched its Margaux Collection, a new range of contemporary statement earrings now available at select retailers and online stores. Founder and head designer Megan Keyser creates one-of-a-kind handcrafted pieces from her studio in Gardens. Using raw stones, sterling silver and recycled brass, Megan fashions 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, designed to age with grace,' says Megan.

The jeweller is proud to introduce the new Margaux range to the world. Stepping out of her comfort zone with bolder, statement designs, the range gives testimony to the growth and change that she as a designer is experiencing.

'I had so much fun designing this range and was able to learn more about my own personal style and preferences. My hope is that the wearer has as much exploration wearing these pieces, too.' – Megan Keyser

The Margaux range comprises of 10 statement earrings in brass and sterling silver – effortless appeal for any occasion. 'The earrings in the new collection make a rather bold statement, while still affirming to each wearer’s personal style. The new range is suitable for day and night wear, with pricing at well below R500 per pair, making it light on your pocket, just like all our jewellery,' shares Megan.

'Although we are selling through online marketplaces such as Kamers and the House & Leisure online storewe are actively looking for more stockists up north and beyond South Africa's borders.' The studio, which has attracted a loyal following countrywide, also offers a bespoke service specialising in custom-designed engagement and wedding rings.
