Rachel Marie Designs began when I was twelve. My mom owned a boutique; fashion and sparkle were all around me. She frequently went on buying trips. She knew that I had been playing with some plastic beads and making little stretchy bracelets for myself and her. I would always ask her if I could sell my bracelets at her store. She would say, “Not this one, but if you make it more like this, I might be able to.” She started to bring home crystal and freshwater pearls. Quality materials made the difference and everything started to fall into place. I worked on pieces whenever I could and soon had a nice collection to sell from. My mom set up a Trunk Show for me at her store and I sold 39 pieces of handmade jewelry.
The line has been consistently changing over the years and I have had great mentors to help me along the way. My mother has been a consistent help and encourager.
New pieces are added each season to make a complete collection of jewelry that is wearable day-to-night and allows the wearer to have a timeless piece of art.
