Hi, I'm Rachel Lucie, and I'm an independent jewellery designer-maker and photographer living in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. UK.
I have always loved jewellery and discovered a passion for designing and creating my own in 2008, whilst having a career break to bring up my two young children. I never went back, and instead created my own jewellery brand which I have been selling in galleries and online ever since.
I happily spent hours as a child lost in a world of beads and wonder, playing with an Indian silver and sandalwood box of my Grandma's which was filled with antique broken jewellery oddments and semi-precious beads of all kinds from Edwardian, 1920's and Art Deco necklaces. The romance of bygone days and all these broken and forgotten gems has always stayed with me and still inspires my work today.
The creative journey I started in 2008 lead me to a way of realising another passion - photography. I've always been interested in the small details of life, and the need to photograph my jewellery properly to tell it's story online lead me to develop my photography skills. I now love to capture and share the detail in nature that I find so beautiful. I am so excited that after 3 years, this kernel of an idea has become Art House where I have developed a range of products featuring my photography so that you can bring nature and flowers into your home.
I love to blog, and use Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter, please follow me on these to find out what I'm up to. I am also creating a gallery of my inspiration and past designs.
Unique British Design
Most high streets look the same nowadays, and it's hard to find something a little bit different. Many people are starting to seek out the quirky unique qualities that independent British brands have to offer.
My unique jewellery designs are all handmade by myself using sterling silver, gold-fill, semi-precious stones and freshwater pearls. With a distinctive contemporary style, Rachel Lucie Jewellery is romantic, wearable and precious. It's ideal for anyone who loves quality gemstones with precious metals and wants to own something individual which they can wear to express who they are and treasure for years to come.
My Art House products have been developed with a select range of British and European manufacturers, where they are made or finished by hand.
