At the age of 15 Rachel got the taste for silversmithing when she accompanied her Grandpa to an evening class which she continued going to until she left home to study 3D crafts at Brighton University.

After graduating in 1999, she set up her workshop at Cross St. Studios in Hove where she worked for the next 11 years. She started her business producing a range of silver charms.Her work has developed over the years with a strong illustrative theme running through it & has gone from miniature kitchen utensils to the intricate miniature drawings on coins.

Rachel is inspired by the simple day to day objects in our homes & likes to bring life back to things that have little purpose in the way we live our lives today. Her coin jewellery can be found in homes all over the world.

She is currently living in West Somerset with her husband & two young sons, where she continues to enjoy making & developing her work.
