rae rodriguez is a maker. a creator. a jewelry designer.
since 2008, I've been crafting jester swink jewelry, translating my love of detail and composition in photography into jewelry design. my pieces speak to elements of nature and textures through various metal methods. i love to create the "unexpected" of design combinations. my approach is always to be innovative in both design and wearability, and I encourage you to play through layering for personalized expression.
juxtapose collection >> my fusion of body + home creates an esthetic for you + home entertainment. it's art + jewelry. you're the entertainer, for your home; your sanctuary. light and shadow (from photography) continue to play an important role in my work, which is where nature adds to the juxtapose pieces as they hang on the wall.
jester swink designs are made in oakland, california, at my live/work studio space where I also teach jewelry-making classes. i am passionate about conscious creativity, and support local and environmental sources that adhere to my ethical business standards.
