Biography:

Rachel Emmerson combines contemporary design with the traditional techniques of hand engraving and enamelling. Working in silver and gold, Rachel produces exquisite, sensual pieces of enamel jewellery that have a unique sense of depth and luminosity.Specializing in champleve and basse-taile enamel work Rachel explores the relationship between pattern, form and colour. “I am fascinated with the effect the engraved metal surface has on the enamel in terms of colour change and light refraction. Silver adds the softest pale lustre while gold imposes a rich warm glow”.Pieces range from intricately engraved feather motifs contrasting delicate greys against deep crimson and blood reds to minimal carved surface planes with subtle blended tones of opalescent and translucent colour. Gently curved forms accentuate the brilliant cut textures of the metal allowing a wonderful movement of light, which flickers through the enamel, looking spectacular when worn.One-off designs, limited editions and small batch collections. Private commissions undertaken.

Specialist Techniques:

Enamelling - champlevé and basse-taille. Hand engraving.
