Rebecca Clare Designs

Founder, Designer and Maker, Marketer and Brand Strategist

Eight years ago I fell in love... with silversmithing. Alas, after a passionate love affair that lasted only a year we broke up so I could pursue other interests and a 'proper job', but silversmithing and my love of designing and creating unique pieces of jewellery was always at the back of my mind.

For a long time I kept my dream of starting my own business bottled up, for fear of failing at something I so wanted to succeed at, but after moving to San Diego in 2015 and finding a beautiful (and affordable) studio I couldn't put it off any longer.

I am still learning but am loving every moment of it!
