My name is Rachel Hawkinson, the founder and owner of T. Hawk Studio. Metal work became a passion while I was attending the University of Wyoming earning my Bachelors in Fine Art and Humanities. Taking advanced jewelry classes allowed me to learn traditional bench techniques and incorporate complex wire fabrication into my work.
T. Hawk Studio is founded on the principles of unique, custom design and quality craftsmanship. There is heavy inspiration found from Mother Nature by stone selection (and procurement source), pattern, and incorporating natural elements such as leather, eco-friendly materials and packaging. These pieces are for the bold, who love to make a statement. Everything at T. Hawk Studio is a true one-of-a-kind piece of wearable artwork.
