Rachel Riisnaes' Profile
My name is Rachel. My mum taught me the basics of jewelry making when I was little but it wasn’t until I got diagnosed with brain and spinal cancer that I really began to enjoy experimenting and creating new items. As I couldn’t attend school, I had to find things to keep me busy and to take my mind off treatment and its effects. Jewelry making is perfect for that and I have loved it ever since.
The majority of the jewelry I make is made from a product called Friendly Plastic. When melted Friendly Plastic can be patterned and shaped. My favorite thing about it is that no two pieces are the same. You will never arrive at your party wearing the same items as anyone else, Its as unique as you are.
