Designer Series - Rachel Marie Designs

Today I'm bringing you a second in my designer series and I'm highlighting Rachel Marie Designs. Rachel Paga is a Michigan based jewelry designer who specializes in Swarovski crystal, gemstones, semi precious stones lead and nickle free pieces. Rachel began her jewelry career at the age of twelve stringing up bracelets made of plastic beads. Her mother owned a boutique and her entrepreneurial
spirit began at a young age! She asked if her mother would sell her jewelry in her store, but her mom thought it might not be a good fit. However, if Rachel were to start dabbling in crystals and freshwater pearls that her mom brought home, there might be a chance.

After Rachel worked to create a small collection, her mother set up a Trunk Show in her store, and Rachel sold $1000.00! All that hard work and persistence paid off. From there, Rachel has worked with several mentors to become the designer she is today and credits her mom as a constant help and encourager. And I'm so excited to show you some of her pieces today!

Rachel reached out to me last month in hopes of working together, and after reviewing her pieces on Instagram, I jumped at the chance. Her jewelry is so elegant yet so versatile. A true day to night jewelry line. I love the hints of sparkle and neutral gemstones used throughout. And the pieces are so lightweight! You don't feel the weight of a heavy earring yet it packs such a statement!

Throughout the week, you will see me styling her pieces with several different looks. It ranges from boyfriend jeans and sneakers to a sweet floral dress and heels. I could go from the grocery store to a wedding in each piece in the collection. Again, the versatility is what makes this designer so special! Another reason her pieces are so special? She is a strictly a boutique brand so you won't see yourself coming and going. I loving having pieces like that.

Without further ado, I bring you Rachel Marie Designs.




 Rachel's price points are totally within everyone's budget. They start as low as $18, but can go as high as $300. Truly something for everyone. My favorites? The earring and delicate bracelet. Definitely two pieces I would wear every day and might have while I had them in my possession! 

You can find Rachel Marie Designs online, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. If you see something you are interested in, don't hesitate to reach out! You definitely need it in your own accessories collection! A perfect Mother's Day gift!!
