Rachelle Thiewes | The Metal Museum | Master Metalsmith 2023


The Metal Museum has selected Rachelle Thiewes as this year’s Master Metalsmith.

The exhibition Hued will be on view from Oct. 1st thru Jan. 28th, 2024.

The shimmering jewelry of Rachelle Thiewes evokes the grandeur of the human form, along with the natural wonders of her home, located near the Chihuahuan desert in western Texas. Whether assembled from multiple parts that actually move, or crafted from stable elements that virtually sweep one’s field of vision along vibrantly colored surfaces, her engaging jewelry addresses the body, the environment, and the viewer.
