Made in New York

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.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Forget Me Not Rings:

    I have purchased this ring at least three separate times because of how much I love the design of the piece, but each time, it snaps in the exact same spot: on the band, right next to where the bow is soldered. After one purchase, I had the band snap on me within two days. Especially knowing how fragile this ring is, I decided I'd only wear it on days where I felt that I wouldn't be using my hands excessively, making it a "special occasion" ring rather than an everyday one (which bummed me out), and the rings would still break. I would gingerly and gently put on and take off the rings, and still, they'd break. The last time I purchased this item, I ordered a size up and only wore it on my ring finger, and it broke.

    I understand that, due to the design, the band is meant to appear to be as thin as a piece of string (considering it is cast from one, right?). It is, in fact, very thin and dainty, which is part of what I love about this ring and why I continued to buy replacement after replacement after each subsequent one broke. I wish I knew how to solder because I'd just fix and reinforce the ring each time (as I mentioned, each piece has snapped in the exact same spot, which is actually hidden underneath the bow, so the thought of trying to take it to a jeweler to get it fixed/reinforced has crossed my mind). I am so so so in love with the aesthetics and the way this dang ring sits on my finger that logic and reason fail me each time I select my size and add it to the online shopping basket. I've tried wearing one after it broke, and the jagged spot where the band snaps catches on EVERYTHING (which is typically how I unfortunately discover that the band has broken). I will note, for full disclosure, that Uncommon Goods sent a replacement piece one time, but that was the one broke, too (no offense! the gesture was so kind, and I appreciated it greatly).

    With all that being said: this ring is adorable. It's perfectly dainty and looks so perfect either by itself or stacked with other simple, thin rings. I initially always wore the ring as the "string tied on my finger" to remind myself to be well and breathe, but, due to reasons mentioned above, I moved the ring to a thinner finger with the (failed) hopes of the ring staying in tact. If you do decide to purchase this item, make sure to treat it gently and cross your fingers that it lasts; once you see it in person, you'll fall in love, and if it ever breaks, your heart will, too. Trust me, like a bad boyfriend who I'm dead set on taming, I keep going back, but like a bad soap opera, things just don't work out. Such a bummer!

      Comments about UncommonGoods Forget Me Not Rings:

      I brought this ring from the site about 2 years ago and although it would snag on things and occasionally mishapen itself (I shaped it back, of course), it was still quite durable. Ironically, one weekend after I thought about how other reviews noted it was so delicated, mine broke towards where the band + bow connected. I wore it almost daily, so I think it held up well considering it had a 2 year life span with me. It's such a cute and dainty ring, much better than the other cheaper versions that look similar to it. I'm currently debating whether or not to order a new one, but I have to admit the price kind of deters me from doing it right away.

        I got this as a promise ring from my boyfriend. I loved it so much and wore it every day! I got so many compliments on it! Even people who had the Tiffany bow ring thought this one was much prettier! The only problem with this ring is that it is very delicate. Every time I wore it, it bent and twisted. Sadly went I went to put it on the other day it cracked in half...so sad!

        Only negative comment I would have is that it was little pricey. It is a quality product, seems durable, sized correctly.

            I bought this ring many, many years ago. I wore it while I was breastfeeding my now 4 year old son, to remind me which side I was supposed to start on. I know, TMI. Anyway, I wore it so much that it broke. I LOVE this ring. Is there any way that I could get it replaced or repaired without buying another ring? I didn't realize that it was still available.

              So cute, I had this on my wish list for a while. My boy friend gave it to me for our anniversary. Its delicate yet durable, very cute. I receive complements every time i wear it.

              Tips: take it off when sleeping, showers, washing hands(just in case it slips off) and take good care of it. It may not be some thick heavy ring you can wear 24/7 but it is very adorable.

              I was looking forward to giving my daughter this ring as a graduation gift, but it is so flimsy I plan to return it. The style is attractive but the metal is so thin it bends easily -- giving the impression it's a $5 child's toy ring than a real piece of jewelry. It was very disappointing.
