Rachel’s current collection of jewellery is inspired by random doodles and sketches that explore repetitive, familiar shapes and patterns.

These are then drawn onto a surface of white enamel with a graphite pencil or rolled onto copper/silver, covered with a layer of white enamel and rubbed back.

Rachel uses white enamel because of the variety of subtle colours you can achieve during the firing process.
