Biography:

From her snug attic workshop in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter Becca makes jewellery and silverware inspired by the coastal landscape as she looks out over the grey, tiled roofs of the city. This love of the coastline comes from a myriad of childhood holidays in Wales, spent exploring the rivers, fields and beaches around her father’s family home. Constantly inspired by the elegant lines of the landscape she’s still a regular visitor to the countryside whether by foot or on a bicycle and always returns to Birmingham with a camera full of pictures and pockets full of twigs and pebbles. These translate themselves into shapes and textures which cover her workshop until they come together to form work characterised by its bold simplicity and subtle balance. From tiny earrings to tall water jugs Becca delights in the process of making and is most at home when covered in a fine coating of silver dust.

Specialist Techniques:

Becca makes a specialty of acid etching, building layers of subtle texture across sheets of silver which she then forms into her Estuary series.
