Luce Artist Biography

Rachelle Thiewes views her work as “sculpture for the body,” and is inspired by both the desert landscape of her Texas home and her marriage to a jazz musician. Her dynamic jewelry combines form, sound, and light, all of which raise the wearer’s consciousness about the artwork and about his or her own body.
