Rachael designs and creates her lovingly handcrafted, sustainably-sourced silver and gold jewellery from her studio space in Calgary. Laughing Sparrow jewellery is modern, minimalistic and simply beautiful.
Rachael dreams, lives and breathes jewellery.
She had been making jewellery since she was a child, starting with stringing
beads then progressing to selling wire wrapped sea glass at her grandmothers
store when she was 12.
She was able to begin to translate all the designs in her mind when she took my first silversmithing class in 2007. She makes every piece start to finish with her own two hands and a few simple tools. Working with reclaimed sterling silver and gold and responsibly sourced semiprecious and precious stones, she uses traditional goldsmithing techniques such as filing, piercing, forming, soldering, and polishing to create contemporary and functional designs.
