Rachel Quinn

"My work expresses my attraction to bold forms, strong lines, and well-crafted, minimalist design. I see my work as wearable sculptures for the body."

Rachel Quinn works from her small studio in the Ojai Valley in Southern California, where the calm, natural surroundings inspire her to create simple, balanced shapes to adorn the body.

Each piece begins and ends in Quinn's hands, where it is either hand-fabricated from metal or carved from wax, then cast. Working in sterling silver and 14K gold, often in combination with one another, Quinn explores contrast and balance within the confines of shape, color, and textural finishes.

After earning her BFA and trying to break into the New Your City art world, Quinn decided to expand her skill set by completing the two-year metalsmith program at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology. Since graduating, she has been working as a professional jeweler, both for herself as well as for many talented designers.
