Meet The Maker – Rebecca Lewis

Rebecca’s unique jewellery draws upon the inspiration of antiques and collectables. Hand set precious and semi-precious gemstones take centre stage in her classic, yet contemporary designs, which are often complimented with freshwater pearls.

Rebecca uses small granules to create a delicate and tactile quality. The ancient technique of granulation features strongly in many of Rebecca’s pieces. Not all pieces are premeditated or pre-designed, what Rebecca enjoys most is sitting at her bench and letting the materials and techniques dictate the final outcome, therefore producing bespoke one off pieces of jewellery.

Since graduating with a First Class BA (Hons) in Contemporary Crafts Rebecca has returned to Herefordshire to set up as a self-employed jeweller.

After being accepted as the graduate member of Alloy, Hereford’s Jeweller’s Group, Rebecca moved into their communal workshop at The Courtyard Theatre in September 2006.  Since then her work has gone through many changes, resulting in a style that she can call her own.
