Biography

Rebecca’s jewellery is handmade from her home on the small island of St Agnes in the Isles of Scilly. Scillonian shells, pebbles and sea glass are bound in silver to create wearable pieces whose design echo the natural shapes and forms of the unique location in which they are crafted. In many of her designs she uses leaves, plants and feathers to imprint natural textures onto silver. This gives her work a found quality, almost as if the pieces were produced through a natural process. As well as these local materials, precious and semi-precious gemstones are used to give vibrancy and colour to her jewellery.

Rebecca makes all of her jewellery by hand, without casting or machine work. These ensures each piece of unique.

The artist has been making full time for over twenty years, and has exhibited in galleries and at craft fairs all over the UK.
