The Meredith Marks collection reflects inspirations of her Asian travels and embodies the natural beauty and culture of the countries where she travels. Meredith combines the practicality of multi-functional pieces with the raw beauty of natural stones and foreign motifs. Meredith uses gold, silver, precious stones such as diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds and semi- precious colored stones such as moonstone or amethyst melding them into creative modern designs with a classic twist. Inspired by living in Park City, Utah for a few years, Meredith launched a collection of fur jackets and accessories in 2015. Meredith works with chinchilla, fox, mink, rabbit, and cavalino furs to create a luxurious and versatile collection. Meredith hails from Chicago and the fashion districts of Oak Street and Michigan Avenue from a family that was always involved in fashion. Meredith remembers her mother coordinating charity fashion shows and as a former model, Meredith has always been tied to the fashion industry which combined with her passion for fashion, was a natural transition into jewelry design. Meredith holds two graduate degrees from Northwestern University (Law and Business), certificates from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). Meredith lives in Chicago with her husband and three kids, Reid (19), Brooks (17) and Chloe (15).
