The Maker:

Designer and self-taught jeweler Rachel Frye has worked in many creative mediums throughout her life, so making jewelry came about naturally but almost by accident. The original designs were born out of a love for found objects and a desire to give them new life. This eventually led to the desire to create her own simple and easy to wear unique objects. Rachel's exploration in Jewelry and adornment began 2008 when she launched the line CIVAL to local boutiques and retailers and after slowly growing over the years, in 2013 CIVAL Collective was fully established as a jewelry label.

Rachel teamed up with creative business savant Danielle LaVigne to make a cohesive line of contemporary well-crafted accessories in brass, natural stone, and leather with a focus on function, form, and durability. The duo finds inspiration from many traditional aesthetics, including vintage textile patterns, geometric forms, and strong architectural lines.

As Wisconsin natives with small town roots, their connection to the Midwest landscape and way of life is evident in their timeless creations. Drawing on the Great Lakes in particular, they bring color and texture to their designs that are easy to wear, perfect for any occasion, and made to last.
