Rebecca Sarah Black is a Scottish contemporary jewellery designer maker. Her work is inspired by the dramatic coastline of Scotland—rock formations, crevices and clusters, and the textures and colours brought on by the eroding tide.
The spark of Rebecca’s work is her fascination with traditional Scottish Folklore - epic tales of Selkies, Kelpies, Rashen Coatie and the Bean-Nighe are all connected to and born from the dramatic landscape. Every piece she creates retains this allure at its centre.
Rebecca works in both precious and natural materials, giving her work a unique weight and feel. Working in a transformative process, she takes raw, discarded cow bone, carving into and adding to it to create something new – giving her work complex, emotive and precious qualities, whilst staying evocative of the dramatic coastline. Shapes and forms she finds visually inspiring echo through her work, creating a feeling of topophilia for the wearer.
