Margaret Solow’s designs are informed by both the world around and inside of her, drawing inspiration from her travels, art philosophy, and nature. Whether it is a mid-century painting, a bird resting on a branch, or the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, her jewelry expresses these things by distilling them to its simplest visual form.

She has been called the “anti-bling” jewelry designer because of her understated approach and use of natural materials. Embracing the imperfection found in nature, her stones are chosen for their individual beauty rather than uniform flawlessness.

Also integral to her work is a respect for people and the environment, so responsible manufacturing practices, sustainable elements, and non-conflict gems are all used to produce her handmade jewelry.
