Rachel Emmerson

Rachel Emmerson is a British jewellery designer specialising in fine enamel work. Her designs are beautifully hand engraved in precious metals and fired with richly coloured transparent enamels.

Rachel initially trained as a hand-engraver and is a member of the 'Hand Engravers Association of Great Britain' but her love of colour drew her towards enamelling. Rachel is a specialist in the techniques of Champleve and Basse-Taille enamelling.

"Enamel is such a dynamic material in terms of its colour spectrum and combining it with engraving brings a wonderful quality of reflection, texture and luminosity to my work"

Rachel's current range of jewellery includes one-off bespoke designs, limited edition pieces and seasonal colour collections. Individual commissions are undertaken. She regularly exhibits her work at 'Goldsmiths' Fair' in London and 'Art in Action' in Oxfordshire.

In 2011 Rachel moved to a new studio and gallery space at Cromford Mills in Derbyshire, a UNESCO world heritage site based in the stunning Peak District.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 57 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
