Ring #3 from Rachel, and it is amazing. The turquoise stone is beautiful and the setting is unique and complements the stone. Another wearable piece of art. I just love Rachel's work.

About

Nature Inspires and Grounds Me.....

Education...Rachel graduated from California State University of Northridge with a Bachelors degree in Photography and a Masters degree in Art Education. She has a fully rounded art background in Art History, Fiber, Pottery, Painting, Drawing, and Jewelry fabrication.

Materials...Rachel found creating jewelry as a beautiful process to express her inner soul. She loves to create unique, one of a kind jewelry; mixing different forms of textures and colors. She incorporates Sterling Silver, Gold, natural gemstones, and found objects in her jewelry designs.

Process...Rachel uses traditional metalsmithing techniques to create her jewelry: soldering, sawing, cold connections, and forging. All of her chains, ear wires and posts, head pins, bezels, and clasps are hand made. Each link, ear post and wire are soldered and shaped from solid wire. Attention to detail and quality is very important to Rachel. Her freeform gemstone pendants are exquisite front and back. Each cabochon, bezel setting is hand cut on the backside so you can also view the stone. She recently started to do her own lapidary work; by hand cutting and hand polishing her own stones. She uses nature as the subject matter for her pendants. "Nature is always evolving. Constantly changing and becoming reborn."

Handspun...When Rachel's fingers become sore from bending and sawing metal, she dyes soft, Merino, Tencel, and Blue Face Leicester fiber and spins fabulous yarn. Rachel strives to create truly one of a kind yarn that can be knitted, crocheted, felted, or woven into beautiful wearable's.

Care instructions

Sterling Jewelry Care:
All sterling silver tarnishes through a process called oxidization. This cannot be prevented but can easily be cleaned with a treated polishing cloth.
Preventive Care:
I always include a sealed plastic bag with your jewelry purchase. Storing your jewelry in this sealed plastic bag will slow down the tarnishing process. Sterling jewelry will tarnish if it is exposed to air.
Silver and the patina that I add to some of my sterling pieces will react to chlorine. Please avoid wearing your jewelry in a swimming pool or when you shower.
To remove oils from beach stones or silver, gently wash your piece under warm water and a mild, ammonia- and phosphate-free dishwashing soap.
