Since graduating from The School of Architecture at The Pratt Institute, Miriam Merenfeld has directed her passion for design and style to her jewelry line. Miriam Merenfeld Jewelry is a labor of art; creating designs that evoke meaning and showcase her eye for composition. Born in Venezuela to an architect and a painter, Miriam has been inspired by the arts, architecture, different cultures and their landscape. She has a true passion for design and art.
Miriam currently resides in Miami with her three children and husband. With the ocean and blue skies as her backdrop – there is a calming spirit of tranquility reflected in her collections. Her designs are imbued with a love for symbolic message and spirituality. Many pieces can be customized to tell an individual’s story, thereby giving them personal significance, while at the same time juxtaposing and intertwining the beauty of semi- precious stones and metals.
