Rachel was my best friend and much of the inspiration behind some of the products that I make and sell. She worked for me helping with everything from making bullet belts to assisting me in picking out new merchandise. She was very involved in helping me design many pieces of jewelry and showing me new trends that I was totally unaware of.

Rachel became the face of many product photos as she was always up to do a photoshoot and hands down my favorite model to work with. She always knew what I wanted with very little direction.

She was more then an employee, she was family. She was there at the creation of this company and encouraged me every step of the way.
Through all the ups and downs, the 7am drives to vend an event, the 2am freak outs the night before. Her presence will always be a part of this company

She is and will be missed, but as long as I am alive I will keep her memory and spirit going.

I have even sewn some of her clothing into the vest that I wear when I go out. Just ask me about the tank pocket and I will tell you all about it and her.
