Rachel Pfeffer is a second generation jeweler. Not only is her dad a jeweler, but so are two uncles (on different sides) and a cousin. She grew up in her family’s
jewelry store and Western MA, never wanting to go into the business. It wasn’t until after college that she started dabbling, and it wasn’t long until her Etsy jewelry shop was full time. Now she works from home in her basement studio in Takoma Park, MD, where she lives with her husband and two small boys.
