Kiel Mead

Kiel (pronounced as you would "Kyle") Mead is a Fredonia High School 2002 graduate. In the six years since, Mead has transcended from the Hillbillies' school art classes to an up-and-coming jewelry and furniture designer in New York City.

Mead's jewelry stands out in stark contrast to the expected use of precious stones, gems and metals. Where most people see finite use for a common object, Mead sees vast potential. The results are whimsical and unexpected.

His innovative designs have been featured in magazines, museums and on a myriad of websites and blogs. Kiel studied Industrial Design at Pratt Institute of Art where he learned to appreciate and explore the extraordinary.
