Rachel Kranzberg Miller, Judaica is the vehicle that brings together her creative
energies and her personal values. The original textures in Rachelís pieces are
inspired by calligraphy, illuminations, art nouveau, and Moorish and Islamic
art. She has traveled through Europe and Southeast Asia, which has inspired
her love for handmade crafts, textiles, and antiquities. Her work has been featured
in many Arts and Craft books, exhibitions, and magazines.
Rachel graduated from Boston University with a bachelor of fine arts in painting
and then went on to get a degree in fashion design at New York City.
Inspired to learn everything she could about this new form of metal, Rachel
has studied with some of the most renowned metal clay masters, improving her
skills until it was time to invest in a kiln to fire her work.
Known for her delicate and personal pieces, which are made with silver, gold
and precious gemstones, Rachel started making jewelry while raising her two
daughters, Abigail and Tamara.
