Druzys Are A Girl's Best Friend

Rachel Pfeffer is one druzy kind of girl, and an internationally recognized one at that! Working mainly in silver, gold and shiny, happy druzy stones, for a young artist, she’s accomplished quite a bit. And this is no surprise, given that she grew up in her family’s jewelry store.

She’s a druzy addict and it basically comes down to the dictum: girls that sparkle have more fun! Perfect for a daily dose of BLING, druzys are an every-day look that add a pop of sparkle to any outfit. They’re for work, play and weekends on the town.

Though she didn’t set out to make jewelry, Pfeffer dabbled in the craft after earning a degree in fine sculpture from Brandeis University. While working at the Museum of Science in Boston, Rachel started to tinker in jewelry design and after a year, quit the museum job to focus on jewelry full-time.

A day in her studio varies from computer work to making new pieces, fulfilling orders and SVU marathons. We’re so excited that she was able to take time from her busy day to us up all on things Pfeffer!

Get the Sparkle on Rachel Pfeffer HERE:

WP: What's the most complicated piece you've worked on?

RP: I used to make these little people that swung on little swings. I have no idea how I even made more than one.

WP: What do you consider your biggest accomplishment?

RP: I think running my own business is both my biggest accomplishment and challenge. Sometimes I wish I could just rely on someone else to tell me what to do, but on the flip side, I can never imagine doing anything else!

WP: What's next for RPD?

RP: I'm not totally sure!! I've been hankering to make more giant statement necklaces with big druzys, so we'll see how that goes.

WP: If you could custom design a piece for anyone, who would it be for and what would you design.

RP: That's a toughie!! I always thought Nico from the Velvet Underground was the coolest, and if I could, I would have made her some gigantic necklace covered in brass triangles.
