We mentioned a couple of weeks ago that we were excited to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of our dear friends at Brides of Oklahoma magazine. They’ve put together an absolutely stunning 10th Anniversary issue.
Inside that issue, BC Clark is mentioned a few times, but there was one write-up that really got us excited. Consider it our “Hidden Gem.” The ladies at Brides of Oklahoma make a beautiful tribute to one of our favorite designers, Megan Thorne. And while we’ll never fall victim to claiming a “favorite” when it comes to the amazing designers that we carry, Megan holds a special place in our heart for a number of reasons.
Although she may “technically” be a Texas transplant, her Cowboy Orange blood allows us to claim her as a local.
“I’m from Texas, but I actually studied apparel design at Oklahoma State University! It was there that I took my first metal-smithing class as an elective—just for fun. Working with BC Clark feels like a full-circle moment for me, a true homecoming!”
One other hallmark of Megan’s approach to design that we really connect with is her desire to help customers create “modern heirlooms.” She may be a young designer, but she truly understands that that a well-crafted piece of jewelry can, and should, stand the test of time.
“…the ring you are creating now should be passed on to your loved ones later. I wear my own great-grandmother’s engagement ring and wedding band, and I can think of no higher honor than sharing in another family’s special moments. Thus, I am always mindful of distinctive, yet timeless design and quality craftsmanship, so that a ring can be treasured for generations to come.”
Megan’s commitment to design and craftsmanship is the driving force behind how she selects her materials. Much like BC Clark, Megan goes out of her way to use only ethically sourced stones and recycled metals. These values make it an honor to carry her breathtaking jewelry in our stores.
She touches every piece that comes off her line, and personally places her stamp of approval on all of her jewelry. It’s an attention to detail that places her in a class above the rest.
