Megan Thorne: The Fashion Designer Who Fell in Love With Metalsmithing

er-meganthorneJewelry designer Megan Thorne is the founder and owner of Megan Throne Fine Jewels in Fort Worth, Texas. Known for her uniquely fluid and feminine style, Thorne began her career in fashion. While it has been seven years since she traded ribbons and lace for gold and silver, she takes inspiration from her first love when creating her collections, particularly from vibrant prints, delicate laces, and fine textile weaves.

Thorne oversees a team of personally trained jewelers in her studio but remains involved in the jewelry-making process, from designing to fabricating to setting to finishing. As a result, each piece reflects the attention to detail and craftsmanship that went into creating it, instantly transforming it into an heirloom to be passed from one generation to the next.

Thorne studied apparel design in college before she became an assistant designer at a fine lingerie brand. She later discovered metalsmithing and never looked back. Her creations have been featured in Brides, The Knot, Lucky, Vogue, JCK, Couture International Jeweler, and InDesign.
