About the Artist
Welcome to Elizabeth Jewelry, owned and operated by Molly Rahe.
Elizabeth Jewelry began in 1996 when I was pregnant with my daughter. My mom gave me a hat box full of colorful glass beads and a “How to make jewelry” book, and said, “Have at it!” I got some basic pliers and wire from the garage and soon miles of wire-wrapped beaded chain appeared. My daughter, Elizabeth, was, and still is, the prettiest thing I have ever made, so I named my jewelry line after her.
A few months later I cut up the beaded chain and made necklaces, which I sold at my friend’s garage sale. With the money I made , I reinvested it with genuine sterling silver and gemstones, and made a small sample line.
I have evolved my business over the years and now do a lot of hand fabrication with solid sterling silver, 14k gold fill, pearls and gemstones. I cut, grind, saw, hammer, and wire-wrap. Recently, I also use a 3D printer to create new designs that that are cast into sterling silver.
It’s a very exciting time for Elizabeth Jewelry. I hope you will stop back often, as there are always new things in the shop, and be sure to check out my show schedule!
