May 5, 2011 - [New York] - Rachel Brown is a jewelry designer who makes custom-made jewelry collections based on the ancient spiritual teachings of Kabbalah.
Kabbalah reveals the spiritual teachings of the universe and hidden secrets of the Torah written in a book called the Zohar, the definitive text of Kabbalah. She has studied Kabbalah at the Kabbalah Center in Manhattan for nine years and her life has been forever and remarkably transformed through the teachings of Rav and Karen Berg, the founders of the Kabbalah Center.
Rachel's jewelry is based on Kabbalistic meditations composed of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet which Kabbalah recognizes as the DNA of the universe; thus, her pieces are engraved with Hebrew letters expressing variations of these meditations.
The spiritual power behind these meditations connect one to "mind over matter", total control of one's life, and to a realm of bliss where no chaos exists.
Simply scan the engraved letters on her jewelry with your eyes and the energy emanates to your soul and throughout your existence. Kabbalah states that the "eyes are the windows of the soul", so that when you scan the Hebrew letter combinations a spiritual technology takes place as the soul connects to and downloads these energies.
Rachel's core collection of jewelry is composed of sterling silver lightly plated in 24K gold. She has chosen this process because the gold wears off over time, the pieces become oxidized and scratched, can become lighter or darker depending on the energy of the person wearing them, and actually take on the individuality and personal expression of one's soul and character.
The pieces start to look like antiquities over time, appearing as though they had been uncovered from an archaeological dig, thus physically reflecting the 4000 year old wisdom of Kabbalah.
As a gemologist, she has always been fascinated with gemstones and the visualization of color and light. Her exclusive and high end collection is composed of gemstones such as pearl, cameo shell, lava stone, hematite, pyrite, amethyst, rock crystal quartz, black tourmaline, onyx, tiger's eye and ruby. The gemstones and minerals she has selected have a rich and earthy feel which serve as a dramatic backdrop for the powerful Kabbalistic meditations that she use in her jewelry.
