My name is Rachel Broadbent, and I love seeing the beauty that God has created in the world. The awe and wonder of it all inspires me and I enjoy sharing that through my Unique handcrafted items. I love creating things with my hands, and everything I make is unique and has a special place in my heart. Heartofabeholder.com HeartofabeholderonFaceBook
I have been homeschooled since the fourth grade and loved it! Throughout my childhood I was highly encouraged creatively anda have developed many artistic skills and experiences as a result. Now, as an adult, I am trying to determine how to use my skills in the working world, and which ones will be most fulfilling to me…This is my last semester of PSEO at Anoka Ramsey Community College, and Crown College; from here I hope to become a virtual assistant in business, photoshop, entrepreneurship, marketing, graphic design, or potentially coding, as those are all things I have invested my schooling into.
If I wasn’t working towards those things, I would want to be a professional Musician and have a band, as I’ve played electric and acoustic guitar for almost 7 years, along with singing, and playing piano. It is a genuine passion of mine… A word that describes me perfectly is Melomanie: an excessive and abnormal love and deep attraction to music and melody.
Heart Of A Beholder
I started this business when I was 16 years old, and my creations where quickly overtaking my home…Ever since, God has guided me through the ups and downs of business, art, and people. That being said…I’ll do my best to help you find a tree that’s as unique as the person receiving it. I use good quality natural stones and take great care in the details and precision of my work. I hope that you find something that calls to you and pulls on your heart strings.

Within the first three months of business at heart of a beholder, I was approached by Midwest Home Magazine, and later had one of my pieces featured. A few months later, I approached The Argyle Moose with consignment interests and signed the contract. That year I sold a piece to a TV celebrity who gifted it to Melissa Street; a make-up artist who has worked with Kenny Loggins, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carlos Santana, and many more.
