Rachel opens up about her inspirations as she tells us “I am inspired by many things, it could be an emotion, the intricacies of how something is put together, the way a flower grows. I am always looking at how things are created and the smallest detail on something could inspire a new range of jewellery. I pay attention to detail and so some of the things I’ve been inspired by some people may have never even noticed.”
The stunning Molto range is Rachel Galley’s bestselling collection. These unique pieces were inspired by Rachel travels to Turkey, where she was fascinated by the fabulous vibrancy and tactility of chillies drying in the heat of sun. The textured collection of necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets inspires drama and elegance with a lively feminine touch. The true beauty of the Molto collection lies in the elegant movement of the strands, the incredible light and motion make these pieces impossible to resist.
Not only, is it the bestselling collection, it is also Rachels favourite as she tells us “The movement, the intricacy of the strands and the way it plays with the light fascinates me. These pieces when you wear them bring them and you to life. Even to wear one of the pieces as a standalone piece with a casual outfit always gets a compliment and gets noticed. I don’t take the easy route in the production of the pieces which in the end results in beautifully balanced pieces that have been really thought about, not just from a technical angle but from the way it looks and feels on the wearer.”
Another popular collection of Rachels is the Lovelink range which features her signature latticework. The innovative, contemporary design allows the Lovelink jewellery to sparkle as the interlinking pieces reflects the light with an understated sophistication.
