nature inspired jewelry

October 13, 2011

Elaine Rader is a natural-born artist.

Her father, Paul Rader, was a painter and professional illustrator. She began her artistic training in dance, attending Julliard and dancing with the New York City Ballet. She took a break from the arts to work in corporate banking.

It wasn’t long before she returned to the arts. Since 1994, Rader has been a full-time jewelry designer and maker.

Her distinctive pieces are individually fashioned and forged by hand.

The Blue Ridge, GA, artist uses sterling silver and 22 karat gold as an accent in each sculptural piece. The stones in her work range from a variety of fossil materials to precious and semi-precious stones. Boulder opals and pearls are favorites.

Rader’s unique pieces also include rings, earrings ($125 and up) and pendants/necklaces ($325 and up).
