Rachel Butlin uses traditional jewellery techniques such as setting and riveting. She is fascinated by Japanese traditional architecture, unique characteristics bringing together natural materials and colours, with dark and bright contrasts.
She loves to challenge the way in which people perceive a piece, by creating small
scale sculpture that can be worn on the body, in a way chosen by the wearer.
These ideas and themes explore through bold strikes of colour and simple lines, bought together to create statement brooches, rings and neckpieces.
Rachel graduated with a first class honours in Decorative Arts from Nottingham Trent University in 2015.
