Meet the Maker
Mountain Rays Handmade is a small business founded in 2017 and is independently run by Brooke Shanelle located in the heart of the Arts District of downtown Richmond, Virginia.
After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University with a B.S. in Urban and Regional Studies, she decided to follow her dreams of being a female entrepreneur and pursue her artistic passion for fine silver jewelry, gemstones and handmade goods.
Each handcrafted, one-of-a-kind jewelry collection celebrates vintage Americana heritage and public lands by showcasing ethically sourced U.S. mined turquoise made in studio. Her work is inspired by the natural beauty of each stone with emphasis on forging every piece to be heirloom-quality and transforming wearable art from the mountain tops to the desert floor.
