Rebecca Sarah Black is a contemporary jewellery designer and bone smith who creates statement, sculptural and wearable jewellery. Her work is inspired by our constant struggle with identity, the harsh landscape of the coastline and traditional Scottish folklore. Reacting and responding to this she designs work that evokes a sense of place within the wearer.

Working in a transformative process, she takes material that has no precious quality and builds them up or carves them into something new, complex and emotive, giving her work a new precious quality. Her work mimics the forms of rough natural rocks of the shore line, reflecting the shapes and forms she finds visually inspiring, and evokes a natural feeling of connection to the landscape and sense of place within the wearer.

Currently based in the multi disciplinary studio space of Process Studios in Edinburgh, Rebecca is also available as a tutor in jewellery making.

Graduate Collection

'The Selkie's Treasures' - Graduate Collection 2014

This collection was designed in response to my fascination with the Scottish coastline and it's connection to traditional folklore. Our culture of identity, sense of place and struggle to find placement has been documented through this folklore. As part of my studies for my honours degree at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, I created this collection, primarily made from hand carved bovine bone, labradorite stones,  and mixed precious metals. The collection has been designed to evoke a sense of place with the audience through hand carved forms taken from rock formations. 

Please contact me if you would like to know more about this collection or to purchase one of the pieces.
