Rachel Butlin seeks to challenge the concepts of contemporary interactive and wearable jewellery producing a range of high-end, mixed-media wearable pieces. She loves to challenge the way in which people perceive a piece, by creating small-scale sculptures that can be worn on the body, in a way chosen by the wearer. Carefully considering material combination and placement, her work often explores bespoke materials, evoking curiosity between the piece and the wearer themselves.
Drawing with materials is an essential part of her practice, with linear forms, featuring strongly alongside geometric shapes and spaces. These ideas and themes are explored through bold strikes of colour and simple lines, brought together to create statement brooches, rings, and neckpieces.
