>>> rae rodriguez is a maker. a creator. <<<
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 wearable art >> 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.
wall hangings >> this winter we'll be launching our first home accessory line. although unwearable, it's still a whole lotta style on your wall. i'm very excited to develop products that cross over to the home decor enthusiasts.
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.
