DESIGNER NAME: Rachel Boston
BACKGROUND: Born in London, Rachel studied Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martin’s.
SIGNATURES: ‘Pure and strong forms.’
TRADEMARK PIECE: ‘I never take off my scorpion sting necklace from “The Protector” collection, or the lizard skin collar from the “The Ritual”.’
COLLECTION: ‘I am very excited to show my first fine jewellery collection this September with the pieces being made in gold and precious gems. The collection has been inspired by runes, an ancient and esoteric alphabet which was could be used for divination. The resulting pieces are very geometric and elegant designs which have my signature aesthetic of strong simple forms."
WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER YOUR GREATEST ACHIEVMENT: "I’m very proud to have been the youngest of seven designers who were chosen to take part in the Museum of London’s 'Made in London' jewellery exhibition which celebrated “the most talented jewellery designers working in London today". I’m also very proud to have been chosen by both Elle and Harper’s Bazaar as “A name to know” in the jewellery world."
IF YOU COULD DRESS ANYONE, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?:"Florence Welch would be a big honour for me, I adore her voice and music and she has such a powerful stage presence so I’d love to see her wearing my jewellery."
