A recent Jewellery & Metal Design graduate from Dundee’s Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Rebecca creates gorgeous bowls, vessels and jewellery from titanium and eco silver. Eco Silver is another term for Recycled Silver. This means that eco or recycled silver is not mined from the ground. Instead, it is produced using unwanted jewellery, scrap silver, electronics, medical and equipment. Before silver is recycled, it is collected and sorted from other metals. Then it is melted down in a large furnace and purified through a refining process to ensure the final product is of high quality and uncontaminated. Refined recycled silver is just as pure as mined silver.

Rebecca states that the inspiration behind her work is the natural rock formations found in East Fife, particularly between Pittenweem and Elie. These areas hold significance for Rebecca as they meant a lot to her and her mother who sadly passed away 6 years ago. Rebecca wanted to capture the beauty of these rocks through texture and colour. She cites that chasing and texturing are her favourite parts of the making process as they create such beautiful effects.
