CJDG In The Studio with Rebecca Overmann

As most of you know by now, I love to travel. And I love jewelry. So when I can combine the two, it’s pretty much perfection. We’ve launched a new series over on the Contemporary Jewelry Design Group’s website, called “In The Studio” where I get to visit my favorite jewelry designers and see where and how they work.

It’s so exciting to see where artists–and these jewelry designers are definitely artists–create their work. In many cases, their environment can inform their jewelry: the space, the light, the city they live and work in. And I’ve found that most jewelry designers surround themselves with interesting objects and images that all contribute to inspiration.

For this In The Studio, I visited San Francisco to see Rebecca Overmann. In a bright loft in the Mission District, some seriously gorgeous jewelry is all handmade with integrity. Here’s a glimpse of what I found, and you can see the full article at CJDGJewelers.org.

Thanks, Rebecca! You can see Rebecca’s new work at the Couture Show in Las Vegas at Salon 137.

Succulents and rings sizers set the tone at the conference table.

Hand-carved wax molds means that Rebecca’s signature is evident in all of her jewelry.
