Marilyn Brogan has always been drawn to minimalist, vintage and mid-century modern design. As a jewelry designer and maker, she is steadfast in her commitment to an environmentally friendly, sustainable and ethical approach to fine jewelry.
Born and raised in Virginia, surrounded by the magic of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Marilyn has long been inspired by nature. It’s that nature-inspired lifestyle that drew her to Apalachicola, Fla. in 2017, where the Marilyn Brogan Jewelry showroom and studio are proudly based. Marilyn’s connection to the beauty and history of this charming coastal town is evident in her craft – from naming pieces after clouds to drawing from the shapes of water, waves and fish scales – resulting in distinct, one-of-a-kind pieces that are as connected to the people for whom it’s intended, the place(s) from which each metal and stone originates and the destination where it is handcrafted into a timeless, one-of-a-kind design.
A graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), Marilyn studied as a Core Fellow at Penland School of Crafts in the mountains of western North Carolina. After spending several years in San Diego harnessing her proficiency in the jewelry business, Marilyn launched her own line in September 2008.
