Rachel Brown gave up teaching this year after 25 years in Higher Education - most recently as senior design lecturer at Huddersfield University - in order to make jewellery full time from a beautiful wooden studio in her back garden.
Over the past couple of years her jewellery work has explored the technique of drawing on enamel. Rachel was taught enamelling at college and took an instant dislike to it but has revisited the technique with interesting and distinctive results.
"I would eliminate colour altogether and just explore the possibilities of white enamel. If over fired white can produce subtle shades of blue and grey through to yellow." She then applies her instantly recognisable patterns and motifs with a graphite pencil and oxidising stain.
