Our Story

Started in 2009 by designer Molly Conant, Rackk & Ruin has sought to create unprecedented jewelry, fostered by a reverence for traditional symbolism and historic art. The pieces are crafted start to finish in our combination  showroom/studio space in the arts district of Burlington, Vermont.

Rackk & Ruin is made with the intention of fortifying the wearer with inspiration and character.  Our jewelry is thoughtfully designed, with an emphasis on perpetuity and durability: truly made to be lived in. 

Our mission is to nourish our team of three through both financial support and creative opportunities. Being a small maker-owned operation, social and ecological responsibility is of the utmost importance  when we design and produce our work. 

Rackk & Ruin is located on Abenaki land. Social and environmental responsibility is central to our ethos, and we are committed to active anti-racism through our business partnerships, brand representation, and regular reallocations of funds. Maintaining open and honest communication surrounding our business practices will remain a priority as we strive for equity in our communities.
