rachelmckjewellery's Shop Announcement

Rachel produces necklaces, bangles, earrings, rings and brooches to form quirky creations in plastics and rubber. Rachel McKnight studied at The University of Ulster in Belfast and graduated in 2003. The excitement of sourcing new materials and the experimentation with them inspires her to produce original and innovative jewellery. The idea of transparency and opaque colour influences her designs, and plastics allow her to explore this. Simple and uncomplicated shapes and the idea of duplicating these shapes also form the basis for Rachel’s jewellery.

Not only does Rachel have a large range of small batch production, but she also likes the challenge of producing larger scale work for exhibitions and collections.

Rachel originally hand cut all of her work, but in the last couple of years she has embraced technology and now cuts most work using a laser cutter. The idea of combining a man-made, industrial product with a delicate and traditional pattern inspires her work.

Rachel has also launched a home ware collection consisting of place mats and coasters.
