Rifle & Radford

Everyone needs a little R&R once in a while, yes?

Rifle & Radford is an incredible new low-key label that finally came to life at the start of
this summer. In only a few months, the talented designer from Austin, Texas, built
a proper website, a blog with updates on new pieces and inspiration everyday, and an
Etsy shop glimmering with beautiful jewels to compliment each and every mood you're in.

Melanie Radford thinks deeply about the work she puts forward.
Often speaking of the many tones of colored jewels she hand selects. How these jewels react
to light when worn outside, and ultimately reflect upon the skin of the wearer. How they
enhance the surroundings they are put into, connecting to the wearer in a sort of color
spirituality. The work includes a mix of materials, including various metals reminiciant of
Mediterranean iron-work and semi-precious stones to give a primal earthy sense, or those that hold the wonder of sea.
