Rachel grew up in the Deep South, spending her childhood in trees, creeks, and art classes. From an early, she new her path would be an artistic one. After receiving her BFA in painting and sculpture, Rachel moved to New York City and was soon introduced to the intoxicating world of contemporary jewelry. This introduction, by way of working for a Brooklyn jewelry artist, was the impetus to becoming a classically-trained jeweler, and in 2009, she graduated from the Metalsmith Program at The Fashion Institute of Technology.
