Her pieces are handmade, and thanks to her passion for natural and vintage elements, no two are alike. Meet jewelry designer Neely Phelan.

Our Love Story

It should come as no surprise that Memphis-born designer Phelan quickly captured the heart of Miriam's owner (and fellow Southern lady) Kris Budde. When asked why, here’s what Kris has to say:

“[Neely] is a talented and hard-working mother of three with a bubbly vibe. Her jewelry is different and cool - at Miriam's we love finding original pieces and can’t resist vintage elements. Neely’s designs are earthy but blingy at the same time.”

Neely Phelan's Jewelry styled by Miriam's Boutique in Colorado

It’s true that Phelan is quite adept at blending natural elements and touches of sparkle. In her most recent designs, we fell for pieces with iridescent abalone from the sea, arrowheads made of jasper and quartz, and dramatic black buffalo horn. Sweeten the deal with a few vintage lockets, rhinestones, and statement tassels, and we’re absolutely cuckoo for her designs.

While her presence is remarkably strong in Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas, Miriam's is proud to be the only boutique in Colorado to carry Neely Phelan’s unique jewelry at this time.

Is Neely Phelan Right for You?

In the last year, Neely Phelan jewelry has made appearances in magazines ranging from InStyle to Cosmo, from Nylon to the cover of Pregnancy. To us, this is a testament to her jewelry’s diversity - it appeals to women in all walks of life, with a variety of lifestyles and personal tastes.

Neely Phelan jewelry is easy to care for and to wear. We love her brass coin and tassel statement earrings with your favorite black dress, as shown above. Her arrowhead statement necklace is a perfect fit for simply designed pieces like our Jack Meets Kate fitted white Blake dress. Owner Kris Budde has been known to style the simple horn earrings and the quartz arrowhead earrings casually, with sweatshirts and graphic tees. Neely Phelan’s designs have a place in every closet - pick your favorite piece of jewelry and share a photo with us with the hashtag #Miriams for a chance to be featured on our website!
