Absolutely gorgeous. I have taken classes from Rebeca and could have made this myself, but chose to purchase it because the color gradient is so well done and the rings are all closed perfectly. I recommend Rebeca's jewelry to anyone!
Rebeca is the greatest! All rings closed perfectly. Lengthened a bit on my request. Shipped quickly. Only good things to say!
Handmade Jewelry. Infinite Beauty.
Hi, I'm Rebeca! Thank you for visiting my shop. I've been making chainmaille since 2002 and it truly is my passion.
Chainmaille is a marriage between mathematics and free-form shape, between right- and left-brain talents. I'm fascinated that a single shape can be put together in so many ways, yielding virtually an infinite number of textures and patterns. I absolutely love picking up a piece of chainmaille and feeling its very distinct personality come to life in my fingers. By using colored rings and combining classic weaves in new ways, I try to erase people's preconceived notions of chainmaille. I strive to push the limits of what is commonly thought of as chainmaille. When I hear someone say, "Wow! I didn't know chainmaille could do that!", then I know I've succeeded.
I am inspired by fractal mathematics, organic shapes and architecture. Where other people see flowers, trees and buildings, and I see a world where everything is made of interlocked circles. My brain spends a lot of time thinking, "OK, how could I make that out of maille?"
Over the years, I've won numerous awards for my jewelry, I've published a best-selling how-to book and I've taught more than 1,000 students all over the world how to make jewelry. For 13 years I ran Blue Buddha Boutique, a specialty chainmaille supply company. Blue Buddha heavily influenced the industry by introducing new weaves that hundreds of artisans all over the world recreate and sell today.
When I'm not making chainmaille, I'm probably at the gym, cuddling my cats, cooking, watching dystopian-themed TV shows or contemplating quantum physics and fractal cosmology.
