Meriam Linder 1

Meriam Linder

Homer, Alaska

Meriam's jewelry captures her response to each material's cultural and geological history. Besides color, texture, and design, Meriam provides context creating an interactive experience of learning and storytelling for the wearer.

Meriam lives in rural Alaska, where she grew up in an environment of artistic and entrepreneurial spirit. She and her family feel privileged to experience such a unique, sustainable lifestyle.

Artist's Statement

Even as I embrace modern materials, I favor Ice Age era bone and ivory, marvel at ancient artifacts, and am cowed by the timescale of gemstones. I seek out and integrate these treasures—originating in nature, enhanced by time, interpreted and adapted by people.

By bringing together the past and present, near and far, I hope to inspire new connections and understanding.
At "the end of the road" in Homer, Alaska, I live life at a virtual crossroads. I can enjoy a quiet, isolated lifestyle while participating in a vibrant, diverse community of artists and world explorers. I delight in the lifestyle and art traditions of indigenous Alaskans, and also explore and assimilate other styles and cultures. I enjoy the journey of discovery as I forge my own traditions.
