ABOUT MY WORK
All work is lovingly designed and handmade solely by me, Robin Lee Becker. My work is made with sterling, brass, copper, semi precious stones and found objects.
Sometimes I design on a beach, or in the woods or even while swimming or in the shower!
My jewelry reflects my roots as a painter and my love of the creative process. I approach each piece with a plan, yet enjoy the evolution which often occurs as I choose to exploit the metal, push it further than I “should” and paint with the torch. That is when the torch feels like a brush to me.
My work is about rawness, geometry, surface and texture, and a leftover love of collage and found objects. I like things in contrasting combinations. I love the aging process of mixed metals as they naturally oxidize and patinate. I also have always been drawn to hearts—the endless interpretations—such a simple symbol for something so complex.
I love making my work and am grateful for all the people who have made it possible for me to continue on this unpredictable yet creative path.
