My name is Rachel Brown and I am a jeweller specialising in enamel and graphite drawn jewellery. I work from my lovely studio at home in South Yorkshire, combining making with kids and dogs and general family life.
I studied jewellery and silversmithing at Loughborough College of Art and Design graduating in 1993. I initially went into teaching and kept jewellery making as a hobby. In 2014 I decided to make my passion for making my full time job.
I fell in love with this lesser known enamelling technique when I was researching different ways to enamel. I have always loved sketching and doodling, pencil being my favourite medium and so this was the perfect way to explore my drawing.
I have developed this simple technique over the past couple of years. I only use white enamel which represents a sheet of white paper. Although my work is minimal in colour white enamel can be over-fired to produce subtle tones of yellows, blues and greens.
The addition of gold also brings a colourful element to my work. Each piece of jewellery is unique, I hand draw every piece, it’s like wearing a piece of art! I am inspired by anything and everything, a lot of my work explores the repetitive patterns and shapes I see in everyday life, from leaves on a tree to the brickwork in a building.
