About Quiet Rebel Design
Quiet Rebel Designs are for the rebel woman who follows her own style and seeks jewelry that reflects her remarkable self.
"Janet makes jewelry with that “special something” that is so unique to us as individuals.
I simply can’t get enough of Quiet Rebel designs."
In combining contrasting elements, I strive to create jewelry pieces that are modern, organic, and new. Hand-selected gemstones are nestled in settings of silver and gold. Square edges mingle with gentle curves. Symmetry is balanced with disorder. Traditional methods are combined with continual experimentation and improvisation, resulting in jewelry pieces that are as unique as the individuals who wear them.
My pieces are handcrafted from the finest materials including ethically sourced gemstones and recycled metals whenever possible.
About Janet Blake
In 2015, I made the decision to leave a successful corporate position to pursue my own artisan business. As a marketing communications manager, I was exclusively tasked with sharing my company’s brand story. What took me almost 10 years to realize though, is that I was no longer telling my own.
I came to jewelry making via an unconventional path. After studying cello at the Peabody Conservatory, I made my living as a performing musician and teacher for over 15 years. Along the way, I developed a love for the graphic arts and after more study, embarked on a second career in design. What these have in common with jewelry making is my singular passion for creating with my hands. And what started as a hobby in 2013, quickly became a full-blown love affair.
