MEADOW HILLEY

I have a thing for belts.

Part of the draw, I think, is that they are the most practical of all accessories. And then there is the bling factor. Form and function. Theory and practice. The concrete and the esoteric. I’m someone who lives at the crux of these poles.

My belt buckles are one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art, incorporating hand-sculpted polymer clay, found images, paper, beads, shells, and other objects.

I draw inspiration from the extreme beauty of my home —this outermost place that is Cape Cod—but also from the sights and sensations encountered in my travels and reading.
