Rebecca will be joining us in the Mother's Day weekend show bringing her stunning jewelry designs. In her previous career she was a professional actress living in Manhattan and L.A. Now she resides in the beautiful countryside of Orange Co. NC, living a different kind of creative life. Take a look at these gorgeous pieces and watch the fascinating video and we hope you will plan to come to the show!
Rebecca A. McLaughlin NeigherMy work begins in very different ways. The first impulse could be a shape, a texture, a stone, a thought, a spiritual leading. During the process I remain open to new ideas and directions. The unexpected can lead us to a place that is deeper than our initial understanding.

I love being a full time studio artist. There is joy in playing with fire, shaping metal, perusing and arranging stones, and creating pieces that express my inner feelings and my sense of beauty and meaning. I feel a deep connection to the earth and ocean where most of my materials come from. And I feel a kinship with the ancient metal smiths working over open fires and hot coals.

Holding a finished piece in my hand, I get great satisfaction knowing that I am involved in someone having an inner connection and response to a piece I’ve created. Whether they give it as a gift to themselves or to someone they care about, I love that it has the potential to lift or reveal the spirit. And hopefully to become a cherished object to be worn, enjoyed, and passed on.
