Hi! I'm a contemporary jewellery designer-maker, and I create vintage-inspired silver earrings, necklaces and bracelets using semi-precious stones and freshwater pearls. I hand make all the jewellery pieces for you, with great care and attention to detail. I love to design and make beautiful jewellery for you to treasure and enjoy wearing.
Inspiration for all my work comes from my love of nature and wildlife; from a childhood spent in the country and now my home in the beautiful West Yorkshire town of Hebden Bridge where I have a home studio. I have also always been a very visual person and feel particularly inspired by fashion, architecture, the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods, and the glamour of classic Hollywood movie stars.
I developed my independent jewellery brand in 2008 whilst on a career break to bring up my young children. The time away from work allowed me to finally explore my creative side, and I really enjoyed experimenting with beads and silver to create my first jewellery, just for myself. This very quickly took off, and I have been a Not On The Highstreet Partner since early 2009, now running a successful online business and also stocking select shops and galleries.
Rachel Lucie jewellery has a distinctive casual glamour and semi-precious jewels make my designs perfect for all kinds of occasions or gifts, such as for your Wedding day, or even for treating yourself to something unique to enhance your style. You'll find Rachel Lucie jewellery enduring and certainly not something you would find on the high street!
I have also been persuing my love of nature and photography and I now offer 4 designs of original floral photography made into popular gift items; prints (framed and unframed), notebooks and cards, cushions, phone and tablet covers.
