Working Clasp Jewellery and accessories are designed and produced by Rebecca, a regular at the Bearwood Handmade Fairs and graduate of the Interdisciplinary Textile Design Course at U.W.E. Rebecca developed an interest in the lasercutting process after graduating, becoming drawn to the technique in which she could develop endless possibilities and applications. After making various pieces of jewellery for friends and family, she set up the label Working Clasp to offer a range of eye catching and distinct lasercut and etched pieces to a wider audience. Some of her work contains culturally symbolic silhouettes that are often utilised to make witty statement pieces.
“I find inspiration for my work from a combination of drawing and found imagery and like to use sections of my drawings as a starting point. I am always working on new designs combining various materials such as veneers, vinyls and fabrics to create bespoke collage pieces.”
Working Clasp also make alternative bridal wear and wedding accessories such as headdresses, cufflinks, collar pins, invitations and table decorations. Find them in the main hall at the Crafty Pantry this Saturday – venue and times here.
