Intro
Rebecca creates deliciously irreverent jewellery in porcelain and silver inspired by the confectionary industry from her studio in East Lothian in Scotland. She comes from a background in ceramics, with a BDes from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, and a Masters from the University of Wales. After a decade-long international exhibiting career she has recently introduced jewellery and wearables to her collection. She has exhibited extensively in the UK and abroad, most notably at COLLECT in the Saatchi Gallery, London, SOFA in Chicago and at JOYA in recent years.

Statement

Drawing inspiration from the confectionary industry this collection aims to glamorise the simple pleasures in life. The full spectrum of sweet treats from fruit chews and lollies, to cakes and pastries piled with cream and icing, are distilled down to their simplest forms and matched with a sickly sweet colour palette. Pastel tones derived from the sticky opacity of fruity chews, marshmallows and foams are achieved through a combination of softly coloured porcelain and carefully matched gemstones. A wealth of form and pattern is found in the factory produced pressed and cast candies, and similarly in the plastic casings that cocoon them. Nuggets of cast porcelain and oversized gemstones are wrapped up in silver bezel settings and arranged in a collaged pick ‘n’ mix of pleasurable extravagance. The formality of precious materials is removed to create wearables that drip with the desire of momentary self-indulgence and look good enough to eat.
