About

Inspiration behind Smith & Gibb

After discovering over 300 love letters sent during WWII from her Granddad to her Grandmother, Rebecca E Smith has been captivated by the sentiment, the nostalgia and the greatness of a true love story of her grandparents Trevor Smith and Margaret Gibb.

Passionate to continue the love of their old communication, she used their letters as inspiration to design jewellery using the colours and shapes of the postage stamps on the envelopes. What was contained inside the envelopes was too precious to recreate but wanted people see how beautiful these old pieces of paper were.

Truly inspired by her Grandparents story, she creates sentimental one off jewellery pieces capturing the original handwriting, old photographs and vintage colours through the traditional process of enamelling. The collection is ever evolving with the discoveries she uncovers whilst reading the letters.
