I am obsessed with the sea! Luckily I have made Penzance my home so I am inspired every single day...
I'm Rebecca from Rebecca Wilbur Jewellery. I design and make eco-friendly recycled silver jewellery inspired by the Cornish coast.
I have a long background in art and design, starting off as a shoe maker and music photographer in London and then taking up landscape photography for a while. (www.rebeccawilburphotography.com)
I enrolled on a 10 week silversmithing course in Falmouth in 2013 just for fun really and found I really enjoyed working with metal, in particular drawing on my landscape photography as inspiration.
I designed the first seascape ring while I was on the course and it's only recently that I've felt able to return to silversmithing as a new career direction.
I'm now living In Penzance and work from my home studio making jewellery and am in the process of painting mermaids as a collection I hope to sell as prints alongside the jewellery.
