refined junk collector.

on a mission //

Born from a love of art and the need to create simple but meaningful goods, Handmade Darling is the ever-growing hobby turned business. As a professional communications designer with a background in fine arts, I seek to combine painting with texture, typography and color through my digital and print work. Custom hand lettering and calligraphy provides the perfect unique touch to personalize your special occasion, and with a dedicated degree in design, you will receive the best of both worlds.

Rachel's portfolio features a range of work from greetings cards to wedding invitation suites, event accessories and signage, as well as branding and identity design packages. Handmade Darling is based in an 1853 home studio in the quaint, sleepy town of Clinton, NY and provides local love to Utica, Syracuse, Albany, and Watertown. Grateful for platforms like Etsy and Instagram, Handmade Darling is able to reach more people than ever before.
