I’m Raychel, designer & metalsmith, owner of Fruition – simple, modern, organic handmade jewelry.
After taking my first metalsmithing workshop in the summer of 2009, I was hooked. You see, I love to create and work with my hands, but I have the attention span of a gnat and am bored easily. Enter a new medium – metal – and with each new technique learned came infinite possibilities. Add to the mix an endless array of gemstones that are their own work of art in color and pattern. Who’s bored now?! Oh, I’m still distracted by things that are shiny, except now I work with shiny things. And have I mentioned all the tools I get to use….and fire!! So after 14 years of practicing massage therapy, I traded being a muscle tamer for being a gem and metal wrangler!
Using a variety of techniques, metals and stones, I’m proud to offer jewelry and accessories that are distinguished by quality & attention to detail, punctuated with simplicity and handcrafted with love.
