Jewelry Collections

Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction that incorporates technology and artistic design inspired by the 19th Century steam powered machinery.  Designs in this colletion incorporate the parts and movements of old watches and combine them with 925 silver and both 10k and 14k yellow gold, as well as precious and semiprecious stones.  All metals and parts are soldered and/or laser welded.  


Sea Glass and beach glass are similar but come from two different types of water.  Sea Glass is physically and chemicalloy weathered glass found on beaches along bodies of salt water.   Sea Glass is broken shards of old bottles or glass container,  tumbled in sea or waterway for 20-50 years creating a smooth and frosted look.  With a contemporary design we combine Sea Glass with gold and 925 silver to create one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces.


We offer a wide variety of Turquoise Jewelry from traditional Native American to contemporary designs made in our studio.  We combine Turquoise with all types of precious stones, including diamonds and semiprecious stones.  If you like our Turquoise collection - you will love our Custom Collection as well.


Our Custom Collection is an eclectic mix of all types of stones and found objects.  At Meyer Jewelry Studio, Jim enjoys making memory pieces that incorporate old cuff links, buttoms, military medals and anything cherished from a loved one.  If you want ordinary jewelry, go to an ordinary jewelry store.  If you want someting unique, unusual and different - come to Meyer Jewelry Studio.
