MEET THE DESIGNER: MYERS COLLECTIVE

Myers Collective
Jenny Myers SHOP ALL
Growing up in Huntington, West Virginia, Jenny Myers was, as she says, the “art-club kind,” always drawing and painting. But at 18, she was hit with the desire to turn that into something more—the push came to her via mail, in the form of an application for an architecture program at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. “Someone on the high school faculty must have put me on the mailing list because I have no idea how they found me,” she says.

Growing up in Huntington, West Virginia, Jenny Myers was, as she says, the “art-club kind,” always drawing and painting. But at 18, she was hit with the desire to turn that into something more—the push came to her via mail, in the form of an application for an architecture program at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. “Someone on the high school faculty must have put me on the mailing list because I have no idea how they found me,” she says.
That experience sparked her interest plenty. It motivated her to pack up her car and head cross-country with her BFF, landing in L.A. for Art Center College of Design to study environmental design—an impressive blend of furniture design, architecture, and spatial studies. Before long, Jenny found herself back at Harvard to get her masters from the same school where she got her start. “I had mentors like Mack Scogin who blew my mind,” she recalls. “We designed for solutions to real-world places like the La Maddalena Archipelago in Italy.”
Now, Jenny creates things both big and small. “I started making triangulated necklaces out of leather that were stitched together with tiny gold rings,” Jenny says. “Every day, I would wear an experimental piece, and women and men would compliment them, asking where I got them.” So Jenny started selling her work—an entirely handmade collection of clean, linear designs in brass and silk—under the label Myers Collective. But that doesn’t mean she’s switched gears. As she explains, “Jewelry seemed like a natural extension of architecture—I have never wanted to draw distinctions between disciplines.” —alisha prakash
