Courtney Racquel Jewelry
Our Founder & Creative Director
“My life is a continual journey of seeking and searching for a moving target: a deeper, more intimate, and fulfilling relationship with my inner self, potential and personal freedom. And, designing beautifully bold and statement jewelry reflective of that is a big love of mine.”

Courtney Racquel Rhodes
Courtney Racquel Rhodes is the Founder and Creative Director behind her namesake jewelry brand, Courtney Racquel. The brand allows her to combine three things she love: designing meaningful jewelry, chasing personal freedom, and making a positive impact in the world.
Courtney's journey began like that of many designers- with curiosity and determination mixed with moments of panic but unwavering belief. A belief that jewelry created from love and delivered on the brand's promise would find collectors.
The brand was birthed from Rhodes's love for jewelry born from fond childhood memories of making jewelry from melted metals with her dad. That love was nurtured by the style and powerful influence of the women in her family. That foundation has strongly shaped who she is as a designer, her message for the world and how she uses her gifts.
Bold jewelry, authentic self-expression, and pursuing dreams resonate profoundly with her, so, naturally, she’s found her way to this place.
The pieces she create are symbolic of transformative elements of nature (compasses, dragonflies, butterflies, flowers), self-preservation, and a deep hope for personal freedom.
Courtney finds conceptual inspiration through traveling, vintage things, vulnerable conversations, and connecting with diverse people from all walks of life.
The brand embodies the most important characteristics Courtney envisions for the future of humanity: love, connection, unity, transformation, authenticity, self-empowerment, and ultimately personal freedom.
