Rebecca Halstead

Designer

The Goldsmiths Company

Biography:

Originally from East Yorkshire, Rebecca Halstead is a graduate of Edinburgh College of art and worked as designer in the jewellery industry in London's Bond Street and Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter. She set up her workshop in 1991 and also also worked for many years at Edinburgh College of Art as a lecturer in design. Rebecca's jewellery is bold and flamboyant - created to move beautifully on the body. She mainly works in silver - sometimes oxidised black - combining precious metals with high quality semi-precious stones and pearls. Each piece is handmade using traditional techniques, with an emphasis on quality workmanship. Colour, pattern and movement have always run through Rebecca’s work and her current collection brings the technique of stone setting to 'set' elements of silver into her designs. Rebecca's jewellery is exibited in galleries throughout the UK.
