Each beautiful design from Reese & Shore also comes with a sweet and thoughtful creation process behind the scenes. Megan Peterson of Reese & Shore Designs immerses herself into the artful jewelry she creates for her customers. Often expressing personal joy and kindness, her line of jewelry touches the heart far beyond just the thought. This wonderful independent designer has a passion for creating unique pieces to encourage, comfort, and personalize women everywhere.
Out of a desire to create something beautiful and be able to spend more time with her family, Megan began learning how to create jewelry. Motivated by her hunger to learn, she has self-taught the skills that are required to design her beautiful personalized pieces. After receiving a gift of a stamped necklace, she came to the realization that she too could make these kinds of creations!
Featuring her latest skills and personal fancy, Megan is constantly introducing new styles to her clients. She often takes inspiration from her childhood home of the beaches in the Gulf Coast by incorporating lots of blue and aqua colored stones into her pieces. Currently she’s very interested in the vintage inspired jewelry she’s creating because each pieces is unique in its decoration but still a classic keepsake with the touch of a personalized hand stamped design. She enjoys being able to play with different shades of wire and hand wrapped stones in her sparkling designs.
Her most unique piece comes from a very personal place in her life – while donning on the challenges of being a military spouse while her husband is out on deployment, she decided to create a piece that would comfort and inspire her each day while he was gone. She handcrafted a necklace that says “For You I Will Wait” with her loving husband in mind. This piece has become quite popular in her shop because it resonated with so many other women in the same or similar situations. She is happy to be able to share kind words of inspiration and comfort with women through her jewelry. Megan hopes to be able to expand her line to envelope bridesmaid’s gifts to be worn on the special day and all year round!
From one independent fashion designer to the next, she shares her thoughts of always pushing forward and continuing to learn and increase your level of skill within your industry. One of her first challenges was the feeling of being ‘lost’ among the many designers and online shops – she suggests to other independent designs to not pass up an opportunity to get your products out there – any chance you have, just go for it! You never know what can happen unless you try!
Megan’s heart shows in every piece she creates and we’re so happy to be able to share her independent design journey in this spotlight! Be sure to show your support for this amazing designer and check out her pieces available in her shop (HERE) to share in her sparkling thoughtful designs.
