Rodkin went on to launch her jewelry brand. Her most famous piece is a bondage ring. These are rings reminiscent of medieval finger armor, which cover the entire finger. Her first sales were to Tommy Perse, then owner of the Maxfield boutique in West Hollywood. Elizabeth Taylor and Barbra Streisand were among her earliest clients.

Her designs were further popularized by First Lady Michelle Obama, who wore Rodkin's 61-carat diamond celestial earrings, a 13-carat diamond cocktail ring and diamond bangles, to the 2009 inaugural balls. The jewelry now hangs in the permanent collection at the National Museum of American History of the Smithsonian Institution.

Rodkin's flagship store is in Tokyo, Japan. Her designs are also sold in retail specialty stores globally. Her clientele has included Elton John, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Steven Tyler, Madonna, Daphne Guinness, Mary J. Blige, Cher, Rihanna and Steven Tyler. Rodkin's collection includes a bath and body product line, eyewear, fragrances and candles.
