About the Artist, Rachel Weiss
Rachel Weiss, a recognized Craftswoman in her field for over 20 years.
Rachel studied art in Venice, Italy where she was impressed by the juxtaposition of styles of pre-Renaissance and Modern art. She was drawn to the incredible subtle and not so subtle color palates of both eras. Rachel's fusion of these remarkable periods in art is reflected in her unique jewelry collections.
Every single piece in Rachels collection is a one-of-a-kind creation never to be duplicated.
