Rebecca  Collins Jewelry Designer Rebecca travels far and wide all over the world searching for stones and artifacts.

Rebecca Collins travels the world in search of materials for her jewelry, buying gemstones and antiquities from thousands of sources. Rebecca's designs are each singular and unique: as in nature, no two items are ever exactly alike.

When she started designing jewelry, she discovered her fascination with connections between unrelated objects, which lies at the heart of her distinctive designs. Fans admire her artistic combination of contrasting materials such as faceted aquamarine with fossils, jade with vegetable ivory, or two-thousand year old Roman glass....... her "quirky" combinations create her signature look.

Her favorite artists for inspiration are Gustav Klimt and Henri Matisse.

The back of all of Rebecca's pieces are stamped with spiritual messages in order to create a "talisman", which by definition, is something "imbued with magic by its maker". The most common are the following:

DOMINUS ILLUMINATIO MEA

AD MAIOREM DEI GLORIAM
