Megan Auman designs jewelry that is simultaneously bold and easy to wear. Though trained as a metalsmith, Auman draws endless inspiration from textiles and fashion, seeking to recreate the ease and fluidity of fiber and textiles in metal.
Megan Auman works predominantly in steel, forming each element and link by hand from wire, then torch welding each joint. Other welded metals, including silver and bronze, are sometimes used to add variety and contrast to her designs.
Megan Auman received a BFA in metals from Syracuse University and an MFA in metals and jewelry from Kent State University. While studying at Kent, Auman developed a love for working with steel and torch welding, which led to the development of her current line.
