Meet The Maker – Rebecca Lewis

Rebecca endeavours to produce accessible, wearable jewellery.

Her inspiration is taken from antique jewellery and collectables resulting in designs that echo the decadence of times gone by.

With a more modern approach she creates classic, yet contemporary jewellery designs.

Handpicked gemstones are the main focal point of many of her pieces.

She has a fascination with gemstones, particularly labradorite and rainbow moonstone which have an iridescent play of colours.  These feature strongly in her collections.

The individually set stones are decorated with hand placed tiny granules of metal which create delicate and intricate detail.

The granules combined with the oxidised silver finish she uses in her work is reminiscent of vintage marcasite jewellery which has been a source of inspiration for some time.

After graduating in 2006 with a First Class BA (Hons) in Contemporary Crafts Rebecca went on to set up her own business as a jewellery designer-maker and through hard work and determination she has seen her business go from strength to strength; building up a loyal customer base by attending retail shows and supplying craft galleries around the UK.

Rebecca has worked with Heart Gallery for 8 years now so we are delighted that she returned to be part of our re-opening after the 2015 Boxing Day floods and will once more be one of our residential jewellers as we know you love her collections.
