By just looking at her tough necklaces and earrings, you'd never guess that Gemma Redux designer Rachel Dooley is completely self-taught. In fact, designing jewelry was her creative outlet while studying for the New York Bar exam. I've had a few friends take that horrendous test, and they were never able to do anything but study.

Each piece is individually made with vintage and natural materials, and forms shape according to your body. Prices range from $95 for earrings to $330 for necklaces.
