Minerva jewelry is designed and carefully crafted by Rachel Heimgartner in her Brooklyn studio. Hammered gold and silver, contrasting patinas, delicate organic shapes and colored gemstones merge to evoke motifs of ancient Greece and Rome while remaining distinctly contemporary. Inspired by the inherent simplicity and wonder of nature, each unique piece is designed to both celebrate and facilitate authentic beauty.

Rachel received her BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University and studied metalsmithing at Maryland Institute, College of Art. She lives and works in Brooklyn, where she shares a studio with a collective of talented artists and designers.
