Rachel Browns jewellery explores the technique of graphite drawing and mark making on enamel. She is inspired by patterns and textures found in everyday life from cracks in the pavement to the textures found on tree bark. Each one of her pieces are one-off due to the hand drawn nature of the process. She uses white enamel only replicating drawing on a sheet of white paper. The jewellery is made from sterling silver, copper and occassionally 9ct gold or gold leaf.
Rachels recent jewellery collection still focusses on mark making by exploring stamps and marks made on to the surface of brass. These are then filled with graphite and resin.
