Chain Reaction

Your vision of mechanics brings to mind pit stains and ass cracks.

Rachel Dooley is about to change your mind. Her mechanical engineer training shines through in her jewelry line, Gemma Redux, made of industrial metals and vintage materials.

What began as a creative outlet while studying for the bar exam (don’t hate her because she’s a genius) turned into a full-fledged business once peeps got a look at her creations.

Bracelets like the silver and gunmetal chains centered with a big hunk of lemon jade and three green quartz nuggets linked together by stainless steel are rockabilly with just a touch of sweet. Clusters of cracked crystal or aragonite will appeal to the gypset.

Making this one seriously popular mechanic.
