I was born and raised on St. Thomas, in the U.S. Virgin Islands, but have lived up and down the Eastern seaboard from Florida to Virginia, with Georgia and South Carolina in between. There was also a move to Texas thrown in there for a taste of the Midwest! None of these places, however, give me the inspiration that the islands do!

The neutral hues drawn from the shells and the sand provide the perfect backdrop for the subtle variations of nature-inspired color that can be seen throughout my work!

I grew up surrounded by the arts, undoubtedly leading to aspirations for talent in the field! My Grandmother was an amazing graphic artist. My Mother owned her own craft store and is an exceptional jewelry designer. My Father is a master…

I grew up surrounded by the arts, undoubtedly leading to aspirations for talent in the field! My Grandmother was an amazing graphic artist. My Mother owned her own craft store and is an exceptional jewelry designer. My Father is a master craftsman and owns his own successful candle-making business. Watching these artisans throughout the years helped develop my personal style and drive my creativity. For as long as I can remember, I always had a special passion for beads and jewelry….after all, what little girl doesn’t! In high school I started working with my Mother and a local jeweler. Working with these amazing artisans only piqued further interest and passion for jewelry design and creation. A few years ago, I finally had the opportunity to delve seriously into my passion and start this journey!

I hope you enjoy my collection! If there is something you would like and don’t see, custom pieces are available and ALL inquiries are welcomed! Also, check me out on Facebook at Island Designs by Rachel Walker!
