About

The Accidental Jewelry Designer

Rachel began making jewelry quite by chance in 2002 when a roommate brought home some simple beads and jewelry wire. Although she hadn't previously been particularly interested in jewelry, her keen eye for color, pattern and texture proved to be a great compliment to her new found "hobby". But within a few years it was evident that designing jewelry was going to be much more than a hobby. With demand for her pieces from friends, family and customers growing, her weekend stints at craft shows were just a starting point. Eventually a friend introduced her to etsy where she began selling her designs exclusively.

Rachel's work was soon discovered by boutiques around the country and her work is carried in California, Oregon, Colorado, and Delaware.

Not satisfied to continue making pieces with simple wire wrapping, it wasn't long before Rachel took a few metalsmithing classes, bought all the needed equipment and expanded her shop and her portfolio with one of a kind and limited edition metalsmithed pieces.

It is my desire to establish a client base of customers who buy confidently, knowing they will receive truly unique, heirloom quality jewelry. All of my pieces are absolutely unique and of my own design. I strive to create jewelry that incorporates classic style with natural elements, while always maintaining a balance between pattern and color. I love to oxidized and polish much of my Sterling Silver elements, which gives my work a unique patina that accentuates the design and the natural beauty of the gemstones.

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

All pieces come ready to be given as a gift! Each piece arrives in its own flax linen gift bag, stamped with my logo, which is shipped inside of a kraft pillow box tied with aqua or orange twine.

Custom and personalized orders

Due to the unique nature of custom orders, I typically can not accept returns on custom pieces. I will communicate with you on every detail to make sure we get it right!

Care instructions

All jewelry made with Gold Fill or Sterling Silver can be cleaned using standard gold or silver jewelry cleaner. Some precious stones, such as pearls, should not be allowed to sit in cleaner, contact me if you are unsure.

If your jewelry contains an oxidized silver finish, this does not need to be cleaned as the silver cleaner will remove the dark patina and leave behind a bright finish. With time and wear, the oxidization will polish off where the jewelry touches your skin or clothing and will leave a beautiful grey metal finish.
