Rachel creates original jewellery designs, using recycled sterling silver.
The jewellery is all hand-crafted in her Bristol workshop.
Each piece in every collection is made to order & completely unique. Predominantly working in silver, Rachel uses birthstones and initials make pieces a true one off's.
“She wanted a piece of jewellery to give to a loved one that symbolised their friendship. I came up with the two peas in a pod design – two peas as the two friends using their birthstones – and after seeing it, she decided to get one for herself too, so they could both have one. The necklaces were both nearly the same but subtly different. Then another client wanted three peas using her daughters birthstones and initials for her three daughters… and so on. The collection just appeared from nowhere, all of its own accord.”
Rachel also finds vintage silver spoons to make stunning rings.
“Spoon rings date back to the 1600s in England and represent love, responsibility and commitment. Too poor to afford a 'real' engagement ring, servants would steal a silver spoon from their master's home and have it crafted into a ring to give to the love of their life when they proposed.”
So not only does each piece of antique silver cutlery that Rachel works with have its own lineage, but the act of making jewellery from cutlery is deep in our culture too.
The collections are continually evolving and being added to, with fresh pieces arriving and new collections in the pipeline, so if you would like to keep in touch please join our mailing list.
