About The Artist
Rachael DePasquale • San Francisco, CA
Jewelry • WHOLESALE AVAILABLE • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
I am a self taught jewelry designer whose love for metalsmithing translated into a variety of learning opportunities including several courses and a yearlong internship with a jewelry designer in NYC. I take pride in meticulously crafted jewelry that is delicate, yet powerful in meaning. My pieces are the realization of an intimate experience to be cherished by the wearer. I strive to incorporate sustainability into all levels of my work considering environmental, economic and social impact.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
I use a couple of different methods to create my jewelry - one is from hand carving wax and subsequent casting in metal. The second is to use CAD to create more complex designs and subsequent casting in metal. Depending on the complexity, under my direction, I will have a stone setter set more complex settings and/or an assistant finish complex pieces.
