About

Milwaukee Based Creative Collaborative

Designer and self-taught jeweler, Rachel Frye has worked in many creative mediums throughout her life, so making jewelry came about naturally but almost by accident. The original designs were born out of a love for found objects and a desire to give them new life. This eventually led to the desire to create her own simple and easy to wear unique objects. Rachel's exploration in Jewelry and adornment began 2008 when she launched the line CIVAL to local boutiques and retailers, slowly growing over the years, in 2013 CIVAL Collective was established as a fully jewelry label.

Teaming up with, creative business savant, Danielle LaVigne the two make a cohesive line of contemporary well crafted accessories in brass, natural stone and leather with a focus on function, form and durability. Finding inspiration from many traditional aesthetics, including vintage textile patterns, geometric forms, and strong architectural lines.

Wisconsin natives, with small town roots, their connection to the Midwest landscape and way of life is evident in their timeless creations. Drawing on the Great Lakes in particular, they bring color and texture to their designs, that are easy to wear, perfect for any occasion and made to last.

In attempt to improve and further their work they constantly add a new skills and perspective to each collection, with the hope that the audience will stay engaged and their work will continue. Thank you for your support!

Care instructions

Remember to protect all jewelry as much as possible from scratches, sharp blows, chemicals, extreme temperatures and water/humidity.

Brass is a lovely and affordable alternative to gold. Frequent cleaning is recommended to maintain its true beauty. Salt water, chlorine, soap, perfumes, personal products and perspiration contributes to increased tarnishing of jewelry.

Depending on an individual's skin chemistry, contact with skin may leave a temporary and harmless dark mark.

We recommend treating brass as you would sterling silver, but please avoid using chemical cleaners. Try using baking soda with a small amount of water and lemon to make a clean paste and polish with a micro fiber cloth.

Measurements

BRACELETS: Our leather bracelets are made to the exact length listed. If your wrist measures 7" I would recommend ordering a 1/2" larger.

This is very much a personal preference, so please base your sizing off of something you own.

Our leather bracelets are considered a "custom product" and returns and exchanges will be charged a 5.00 restocking fee.
