London born and based jeweller Rachel Boston graduated from Central Saint Martin’s and continued to study Diamond Grading at the Gemological Institute of America in New York.
Her signature aesthetic of pure and strong forms find inspiration from unconventional sources: looking to nature, contemporary culture and high fashion to celebrate both the beautiful and the damned. Her collections ‘The Protector’ and the 'The Ritual' demonstrate this with a reimagining of beetles, scorpions, talismanic teeth and seeds; taking their organic, sometimes aggressive forms and infusing them with sophistication and rock ‘n’ roll.
The collections are driven by a strong creative narrative resulting in unique, fashion forward pieces. Meticulously crafted whilst retaining a sense of their natural beauty they can be worn by both men and women.
This past year saw Boston nominated for New Designer of the Year at the UK Jewellery Awards and named by both Elle and Harper's Bazaar as a ‘designer you need to know now’. Boston was also youngest of the seven designers chosen to take part in the unique exhibition ‘Made in London: Jewellery Now’ at the Museum of London which showcased the work of 'the most talented jewellers working in London today‘.
All jewellery is created by Boston in her workshop in London’s jewellery district Hatton Garden, where she maintains an emphasis on craftsmanship, artistry, and luxury. Fusing both modern and traditional making techniques the element of hand fabrication is integral to achieving products of both high quality and raw originality.
This London Fashion Week will see Boston debut her first Fine Jewellery line, taking inspiration from ancient Runes to create an iconic new collection.
