Becca Macdonald is a conceptual maker inspired by material experimentation, with a background in textiles, ceramics and sculpture influencing her jewellery practice.
A common theme throughout her work is documenting the 'evidence of presence' and human traces. With an interest in both fluid movement and organic shape, she explores the space where liquid becomes solid and hard meets soft.
Following a degree in Textile Design from Chelsea College of Arts, Becca was employed in London design studios and artist’s workshops. She assisted in the creation of immersive sculptural installations, furniture and bespoke artworks.
An introduction to jewellery making during an evening class reignited a passion and influenced a change in direction and scale.
“My ‘Brushstrokes’ collection captures the evidence of a painter’s presence. Each and every silver brushstroke is individually hand-painted and the ephemeral residue from the painter’s pot is captured. Due to the transient nature of my making process, every piece of jewellery is totally unique. A fleeting gesture and moment of movement is permanently preserved and transformed into a distinctive piece of wearable art.”
