Meredith Frederick is a native New Yorker. Schooled in the fine arts and always having the need to create, Meredith decided to study cooking in Europe where she worked with some of the finest pastry chefs. Still restless with the need to create, she learned an ancient beading technique practiced for centuries. This she enhanced with her unique formulation using silver, gold and a variety of exotic gemstone beads, yet her creations have a special grace because of their link with the past. They are particularly popular because of their natural feeling. One never quire realizes the bracelets are on the wrist. Meredith especially likes to wear them in combinations of three or more so the variety of tones and textures will make a particularly felicitous effect. Each bracelet is entirely hand made in Brooklyn and every piece is a little different and unique. They truly have a life of their own.
