Marie-Hélène Rake Jewely
Forest Grove, Oregon
I was born in France and now reside in the US for more than 40 years. My connections with crafts people in my travels and a strong desire to create lead me to explore different art forms. After working with ceramic and fibers, I became fascinated with the creative transformation of the raw metal into a unique wearable piece of art.
All handcrafted in my studio in Oregon, the material I use is primarily silver with gold accents, precious and semi precious stones. I use traditional techniques of fabrication including forging, casting, fusing and texturing. With contrast in color and texture, my work translates a perceived image and movement into minimal bold forms, accentuated with sparkles of stones. My aim is to offer comfortable, artistic jewelry that will become a special and unique piece for you to cherish and wear with confidence.
