Rebecca Mir Grady jewelry is made with care in Chicago, Illinois. A supporter of marriage equality and environmentally sustainable practices, Rebecca makes all of her jewelry by hand from reclaimed precious metals and ethically-sourced stones.

Born in Alaska and raised in Kennebunk, Maine, Rebecca apprenticed with local jewelry designers before moving to Chicago to study sculpture at the School of the Art Institute. She earned a BFA in Sculpture and Ceramics from SAIC and an MFA in Visual Arts from the University of Illinois at Chicago. After 6 years working as a metalsmith for a handmade jewelry company, Rebecca merged her creative interests and skills into the launch of an eponymous jewelry line. Rebecca currently lives in Chicago with her girlfriend, and travels to Maine every chance she gets.

Rebecca Mir Grady's jewelry combines her interests in historical wandering, mythology, the arctic landscape and geometry. Taking inspiration from aviation icons Amelia Earhart and Beryl Markham, as well as the shapes of the Appalachian Mountains, she creates a cohesive collection that merges minimalistic design and wearable function. Her hand forged rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets are all made from recycled sterling silver and gold. In addition to her ready – to – wear jewelry line, she also creates custom wedding rings and other pieces for clients upon request.

Rebecca Mir Grady jewelry is made with love in her studio in Chicago, Illinois. A strong supporter of marriage equality and environmentally sustainable practices, Rebecca makes all of her jewelry by hand from recycled sterling silver and gold and uses ethically-sourced stones. Her pieces ship in recycled paper jewelry boxes and tissue paper.
