Rockin Robbin Ranch
Robbin Miller of Rockin Robbin Ranch creates one of a kind, handmade necklaces, earrings, and bracelets with a western, gypsy flair. Many of her designs are hand-knotted adding a rustic, organic elegance that she loves. Robbin enjoys combining ‘sophisticated’ pieces, many of which are vintage, with ‘tough’ accents like her trademark use of leather and fringe. She has expanded her jewelry making skills to include custom hand stamped bracelets and pendants which seem to embrace the splendor of the feisty free spirit.
As a Texas native, livestock and the ranch lifestyle have always been at the center of Robbin’s life. Through competing in many different agricultural arenas, she was taught to ‘stand out from the herd’ and embrace a distinctive, western approach to life. On many Saturday afternoons, after returning home from the Franklin Farmer’s Market, you can find Robbin out on the farm assisting her husband in their commercial beef cattle operation. She finds much inspiration and beauty in those responsibilities and it has definitely helped mold her into the person she is today. All that inspiration pours into her creations and some of the best design ideas come to her while out on the farm.
Robbin creates jewelry that represents her unique and sometimes over-the-top view of the world around her. That flair is alive in all of her designs, whether it is the coarseness of the leather, the perfect imperfections in the turquoise, the glitz and glamour of a beautiful crystal, or the vintage pendant reminiscent of days gone by.
Completely self-taught, she spent several years designing pieces for herself, friends, and family and then creating pieces for others to enjoy. She still loves the challenge of finding just the right pieces to put together for an unforgettable design. Robbin loves to use personal mementos (a spur rowel, an old coin, a meaningful charm) to make a design uniquely yours.
Robbin has lived in Thompson’s Station, Tennessee since 2006 and still cannot get over the beauty and friendliness of Middle Tennessee. She is extremely proud to be a vendor at the Franklin Farmer’s Market since September 2013 and her pieces have travelled all over the country and the world. Currently, she has designs in at least 20 different states, Mexico, Canada, and England!
