Brooke Gettig (Mattila) creates handcrafted jewelry made with love and influenced by the traditions of her Finnish heritage.
Rakkaus mean "love" in the Finnish Language.
A small Michigan business, Brooke's jewelry pieces are made by hand. She uses simple tools to create the rustic look.
Brooke uses copper, sterling silver and fine silver to create her unique jewelry.
Each creation captures her passion for the beauty of Lake Superior Elements.
Her great grandparents immigrated from Finland and settled in the Keweenaw Peninsula of Upper Michigan, known as the Copper County.
Brooke spent many summers combing the shores of Lake Superior finding beautiful stones that inspire her pieces!
Several of Brooke's pieces are made from hand-picked agate and beach glass collected by her family for generations.
A few years ago she learned about Yooperlites and her passion for combing the beaches was reignited!
