Meet the Makers

Dave and Georgia Rowswell are a husband and wife team. Dave is a full time high school art teacher in Cheyenne and Georgia is a studio artist using discarded clothing to make her work.  Between the two of them there is never a dull moment or idea! Dave began thinking about designing a line of jewelry using rawhide back in 2011 on New Year's Eve. 2012 was a year of experimentation with materials and designs. Rawhide's durability, lightness and translucency all began to point towards a uniquely suited, beautiful material for jewelry. After developing several designs and test marketing them to rave reviews, the Rowswells formally launched Rawhide Studio in the Spring of 2013. Their founding goals continue to be the design and crafting of a line of contemporary jewelry with a Western sensibility. And yes, it's really rawhide!
