Meet the Maker
Born and raised just east of the midwest, Kiel Mead got rather used to ordinary things. Soon enough, after relocating to Brooklyn, NY, he recognized that while most of the everyday objects we see do not change on their own, our perception and appreciation of them varies greatly in terms of the nostalgic imprints they leave in our minds. Out of matchsticks, car keys, previously chewed gum, string and even onomatopoeias, Kiel fashions jewelry which is overtly non-descript into pieces of desire. His approach to design wields results both remarkable and unexpected. Kiel's innovative designs have been featured in magazines, museums and myriad web sites.View Full Profile
