Rachel Brown is an award winning jeweller who explores the technique of drawing on enamel. This unusual enamelling process involves simply drawing onto the surface of the enamel with a graphite pencil. Rachel has eliminated colour altogether, a bold move in an otherwise traditionally brightly coloured medium, she uses white enamel, exploring the colours that you can get when firing white enamel together with the various tonal shades of grey from the graphite.
The theme of her work is mark making, exploring repetitive patterns, lines and textures. Familiar shapes often appear but no two pieces of work are alike therefore making the jewellery unique, one-off pieces. Rachel’s work has been described as ‘stylish and very wearable’.

All the work is made to order, slight variations will occur due to the nature of the technique.  New patterns are continually added to the collection. You can commission Rachel to make any of the pieces with any of the patterns you see or ask for a specific pattern or text. Please contact Rachel if you wish to place an order from any of the pieces in the gallery section.

Payment at the moment is via a cheque or bank transfer prior to posting. Work can also be purchased from madebyhandonline
