Rebecca Oldfield
...
Rebecca is a Cardiff based contemporary jeweller, graduate from the Cardiff School of Art and Design Ba (Hons) (Artist, Designer: Maker) and Bishopsland Educational Trust Fellow.

To create her pieces, Rebecca amalgamates traditional and modern techniques; fusing metalwork, handicraft, computer aided design and digital production techniques.

Rebecca is predominantly inspired by the materials themselves, enjoying material exploration and experimenting with processes. Yet styles and trends from the past, forms of architectural skylines and industrial structures, intricate and kinetic mechanisms and found organic objects often appear in her pieces.

Rebecca’s works are mostly made with polished or oxidised silver and are either kept smooth or are textured, by means of milling or reticulation. Rebecca embellishes her pieces with either crushed crystals, faceted gemstones or non-precious materials. The handcrafted element to Rebecca’s work ensures that no two pieces are ever identical. Rebecca recycles materials where possible by means of casting and granulation methods.
