Meet Rachel Mielke, owner/founder of Hillberg & Berk. She is the epitome of an empowered woman entrepreneur. The company now has retail locations in Saskatchewan and Alberta, wholesale stores across Canada, and an online store serving customers globally. A successful pitch on CBC’s Dragon’s Den helped Rachel grow her business.
The Fairy Tale Unfolded on our TV Screens
In 2008, Rachel participated in CBC’s Dragons’ Den
and secured a partnership with business mogul, philanthropist and Calgarian resident, W. Brett Wilson. Through hard work, perseverance, team building and community support, she has transformed a one-woman, kitchen-table-based jewellery-making operation into a multi-million dollar company that employs over 150 people.
Rachel and her team have created a collection of jewellery that continues to leave a lasting impression across the City of Calgary and beyond. Not only does Hillberg & Berk
inspire the fashion industry, but they also inspire the empowerment in women and being strong and brave in every aspect of life. Celebrities wearing her designs include Carrie Underwood, Sarah McLachlan, Michelle Obama, Barbara Walters and Celine Dione. Even the Queen has been photographed wearing H&B designs. She owns two brooches, which were presented to her by Saskatchewan’s lieutenant-governor, Vaughn Solomon Schofield.
Rachel Mielke is a business owner who follows her heart and portrays her passion and creativity in every piece of jewellery she designs.
Hillberg & Berk
strongly support local charities and continuously give back to the communities they operate in. This is another reason to visit their two locations in Calgary or shop online from wherever you are in the world!
"I love the versatility and quality of Hillberg & Berk jewellery! Over the years, I’ve built a bit of a collection that is my go-to for every day, every occasion and every event. At work or a night out on the town, dress up or dress down, my H&B sparkle makes me feel pulled together! Rachel’s mission to empower women is such an inspiration and you feel it buzz through her employees. Always such a warm and pleasant experience in her stores!" Amanda Fisher, Calgary
