Rachel Brown

Jeweller

Biography

Rachel Brown is an award winning jeweller who explores the technique of drawing on enamel. This unusual enameling process involves simply drawing onto the surface of the enamel with a graphite pencil.

Rachel has eliminated colour altogether in her works, a bold move in an otherwise traditionally brightly coloured medium. She uses white enamel, exploring the colours gained when firing white enamel together with the various tonal shades of grey from the graphite.

Her work highlights a preoccupation with mark making, exploring repetitive patterns, lines and textures. Familiar shapes often appear but no two works are alike. Her work is timelessly stylish and very wearable.
