Ted Muehling has been designing jewelry and decorative objects inspired by organic forms found in nature since his graduation from Pratt Institute in 1975. With the help of a small staff in his New York City studio, Ted Muehling produces multiples as well as one-of-a-kind pieces using precious and semiprecious stones, metals, pearls, wood, and more. Ted Muehling is inspired by the ideals of his mentors to use the power of design to enhance life and appreciate form, proportion, and balance. Ted Muehling takes an artisanal approach by working directing with the materials, allowing for serendipitous surprises to occur. Each piece of jewelry is thoughtfully designed into unique and delicate works of art.
