Raquel Miller was born and raised in beautiful Southern California. She moved to Connecticut 13 years ago with her husband and three very energetic boys.
She was inspired to make her own jewelry to encourage beauty, expressive language, and individuality. With a passion for the 16th-18th century she tries to incorporate similar features with a twist of architecture.
She took a short metalsmithing class at Wesleyan Potters, in Middletown, CT which taught her some very valuable skills. She is intrigued with taking items apart and putting them back together to see what shape would come about. Her jewelry designs consist of gold and silver wiring, clock parts, and natural foliage. They have an unconventional twist and unexpected forms.
Her jewelry pieces have been displayed at storefronts such as Trish’s Connecticut Artisan Gift Shop, Naugatuck, CT, Stacy T’s Artisan Store, Wallingford, CT, Walmart.com, The Brass Mill Mall, Waterbury, CT and CT Post Mall, Milford, CT. Her jewelry designs are currently exhibited at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut.
