I design and create bespoke chandeliers and other unique light fixtures for residential and commercial spaces, building statement pieces that literally light up the room. I do residential and commercial commissions, and offer designer discounts.
I studied art and design at Cabrillo College and SJSU, received a BA with a concentration in Industrial Design from SJSU, and live and work in Santa Cruz, CA.
Projects start with meeting (virtually or in person) to look at the space , view sample materials and ideas, and generate initial concept sketches. Your piece is created in response to your design aesthetic and existing décor, with natural and industrial elements and custom hardware. Specific materials and finishes are reviewed and selected as the piece evolves, with final approval upon delivery.
I am on-site for installation whenever possible, to fine-tune the piece and make sure everything is right. If the site is out of the area I coordinate with installers as needed.
Installation must be completed by a licensed electrician or contractor.
“rachel always comes up with incredible, unique ideas. she takes ordinary objects and turn them into works of art. i would highly recommend her if you are looking for one-of-kind lighting.
i've worked with rachel for many years and am always inspired by her imagination and creativity. most recently, i was working with a client on a remodel and they wanted a statement lighting piece. i introduced them to rachel and she created one of my favorite pieces yet (the pivoting branch light). it fits in perfectly with the house and the client's aesthetic, and is a beautiful addition to their new space.”

“Rachel was a delight to work with. Her creativity and design skills were evident from initial consultation and concept sketches through the finished assembly and installation of our light fixture. She was very easy to work with and listened to our needs. The finished product is striking and fits the space perfectly. I would highly recommend her skills and services to anyone wishing for a unique and beautiful statement fixture.”

Her creations combine natural elements with an industrial flair resulting in an elegant piece. Rachel has created chandeliers, sconces and light features for my events for many years. Her work has always been a clever combination of materials and concepts that highlight my themes and compliment our decor. These pieces always wind up being the talk of the event. I would wholeheartedly recommend Rachel.”
