Rework · Redesign · Repurpose
When you open your jewelry box, what do you see? What do you feel? How many of these once treasured items do you actually wear and enjoy? If the answer isn’t ALL of them, I invite you to consider an alternative. Marie Kondo says if you hold something and it doesn’t give you joy, you should let it go…. But when we are talking about fine jewelry; that really isn’t an option, is it? What if, from items that perhaps were gifts from a friend or an intended life partner, or an ancestor, what if from those pieces, you could create a piece of jewelry that you would absolutely adore and love to wear?
My name is Rebecca Harrison. I am an award-winning Gemologist/Jewelry designer and I have created custom, one-of-a-kind pieces for people all across the world. I have my own line of fine jewelry designs but custom designing and creating jewelry for people is my passion. I become absolutely inspired when a client hands me old worn out, outdated and out of favor jewelry and enlists me to help them create a signature piece that they then will cherish for the rest of their lives. Together, we determine all the aspects of design, lifestyle, and budget for this new piece of jewelry. It’s an amazing way to extend the joy of pieces that have passed their prime or purpose.
I hope you’ll consider joining me during my cross country design events being held in a city near you during the next year. Dates and Cities to be announced.
Each of these pieces was lovingly created from old jewelry to fit each client's personality, taste, and lifestyle.
We took a ring this client never wore because it was uncomfortable, and created this band using her stones and gold to make a ring that she now wears every day. It fits her tastes and busy lifestyle.
We recut a large round amethyst into this more pleasing cushion shape and used gold and diamonds from other jewelry this client didn't wear anymore and created this ring that she wears every day. It's comfortable and gorgeous.
After her divorce, this client wanted to repurpose her wedding and engagement rings into a right-hand ring. She loved it so much, she later used it as her new wedding ring!
We took old jewelry from a previous relationship and made this pendant and also made a smaller version for her daughter.
We made this pendant as a memorial to a mother who had passed. We used the mother's wedding set to make this pendant.
