Rachel Rose's Rad Studiomates

One of the perks of being a designer: sharing quarters with other really talented people.

Just recently, Rachel Rose graduated: She went from being a designer who works from home to one with a genuine Red Hook, Brooklyn, workspace. There she transforms stark, white silk tees into attention-grabbing, color-drenched pieces alongside other up-and-coming creators. Here are the people who make up her new office posse.


Rebecka Fröberg, a super-charming Sweden native who owns the space and creates teeny-tiny details on her necklaces and earrings using some fierce-looking tools. As she puts it, “Jewelry is so shiny when it’s done, but the process is not pretty. It’s dirty and grimy.”


Teresa Kahres, a jeweler who is almost as into enamel as she is silver.


Andy Lifschutz, who turns hunks of rock and metal into chunky rings and armor-like necklaces.


Annika Jermyn, who makes some of the most amazing teddy bears you’ve every seen using crochet or repurposing button-downs. “I started using my husband’s old shirts that shrunk—or he might’ve grown,” she explains.


Monica Ruzansky, a Mexico transplant and jewelry designer who is as new to the space as Rachel is.
