Rebecca Steiner - Jewellery Tutor
Classes Taught: Chain Mail, Make a Silver Ring, Silver Jewellery, Beading and Stone Setting.
Previous Qualifications & Training:
BA (Hons) in Jewellery, Silversmithing and Allied Crafts at London Guildhall University, followed by courses in Stone Setting and Jewellery Design from Holts and a Diamond Grading Certificate from Gem-A.
I am currently studying for a Masters in Design - Critical Practice at Goldsmiths, University of London.
How did you get involved in making jewellery?
I have always loved to create objects, and as I had a tendancy towards pieces that were small enough to be held and played with, my foundation course tutor suggested a jewellery degree. I love the luxurious materials and the idea of creating tiny treasures. I still create little unwearable objects just for fun, alongside my fine jewellery collection.
Things I have done:
I have exhibited in exhibitions across the UK and Europe, and sell to customers worldwide. I enjoy travelling and learning new things, so I always try to combine work with play.
Things I do now:
I am currently studying for a Masters degree, which is providing a solid theoretical background to go alongside my creative work. Much of my previous studies were practical, so this feels like a long overdue workout for my brain.
My biggest achievement so far:
Travelling solo is probably one of the best things I have ever done, and I still dream of jetting off to the jungle whenever things get quiet over here.
In terms of jewellery, I have won First Prize at the Goldsmiths Craft and Design Awards, First Prize at Walsh's Design and Craft Awards, Gold Sponsorship from J Blundell & Sons and a Gem-A Diamond scholarship. Most recently I was awarded a scholarship from the AHRC to complete my Masters degree course.
Things I hope to achieve in the Future:
I would love to have the experience of working for an international design consultancy, with creative people from all sectors of art & design. I would also like to travel a bit more - I am hoping to combine the two!
Three words that describe me are:
Happy, curious and energetic.
I am inspired by:
New horizons and a sense of opportunity.
My Favorite Jeweller is:
Aahh, I have too many friends in the trade to answer that one!
