By Mckenzie is a unique luxury brand of hand-crafted jewellery that brings together the healing qualities of crystals and gemstones in exquisitely crafted silver settings. Each piece is original and one-of-a-kind, handcrafted with repurposed fine silver (.999) and carefully chosen gemstones.
The creation of each piece starts with a ritual of meditation and focused intention to bring forth specific healing properties. Gemstones are carefully selected for their therapeutic attributes and unique energies and crafted into stunning talismans by jeweler, energy worker and crystal intuitive, Rachel McKenzie. Each By McKenzie jewellery series is designed to magnify particular qualities, with each
individual piece embodying a distinctive energy that arises from the gemstones themselves, and the intention set by its maker – and down the track, the wearer. These are pieces that are not only beautiful, they are designed to be worn intentionally: to hold your own conscious purpose or intention within them.
They hold power and healing potential. From materials to labour, to distribution, By McKenzie is committed to social and ecological responsibility, and supply-chain transparency. Fine silver used in the settings is 60% recycled and gemstones are ethically sourced. We encourage customers to engage in conscious purchasing, instead of fast fashion.
Rachel McKenzie’s hearts are unique. They are not only beautifully crafted but bring powerful strength, healing and nurturing to the wearer. Rachel has exceptional integrity and wisdom - these hearts are created through that wisdom with love. Thank you Rachel McKenzie.

Every piece is hand crafted by Rachel McKenzie in her studio in outback Western Australia.

She started to make her own and hasn’t looked back.

We aren’t currently making custom pieces, and this this has been a deliberate decision. The selection of a pieces is a very personal process that involves not only the jewellery’s aesthetic but more importantly the therapeutic properties it carries. When you see, touch or feel into the pieces you will intuitively know which one is for you. When the match is right, the feeling will be strong. Sometimes our clients wait months for the right piece to show itself to them. At other times their piece can call out at to them straight away.
All of our pieces are one-of-a-kind, made by hand without casts or other processes for mass productions. It is therefore impossible for us to recreate a piece exactly.

Our current collection of gemstones have been sourced from a variety of locations and suppliers throughout the world. Our gems have been collected over many years, with many of their origins untraceable. In more recent years as awareness of the gemstone trade has grown, so has our dedication to finding traceable, ethically sourced gemstones. Unfortunately, it is an extremely complex matter, with no tracking process for gemstones (other than the Kimberly Process for diamonds) and many complex layers of consideration. From Fairtrade principles to environmental considerations, each different gemstone has its own unique issues. Please know we make every effort to secure gemstone from ethical and environmentally responsible sources.
The fine silver (.999) utilised to create By McKenzie comes from Mitsubishi in Japan. It is made from 60% recycled fine silver.
