Designer Spotlight

 Each month we showcase one of our designers, giving an insight into the 'mind behind the maker'

March: Rachel, Simple Hearts Jewellery.

Hi, I’m Rachel, the person behind Simple Hearts Jewellery. I cannot really tell you when my love of jewellery started, it has just always been there for as long as I can remember.

I have dabbled in many things over the years including, sewing, needlework, teddy bear making, beading and leadlight but making silver jewellery was always there - there was just never the right time. Finally nearly four years ago, after searching for years for the right course, I found one in Melbourne that suited myself and my family. I came home after the course and bought my equipment.

My husband made a bench in the garage and Simple Hearts Jewellery was born. I’ve been happily making ever since.

I have been with Under the Oak for nearly 2 years now and have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this beautiful store with so many talented makers.

10 FACTS ABOUT ME

1. I love jewellery – old, new, vintage, art-deco as well as modern and minimalist.

2. I have a beautiful family, including my very supportive husband and 2 daughters, a cat and a dog - all of whom I love very much.

3. I love the beach.

4. Summer is my favourite season.

5. I love plants and decorating.

6. My real job is in aged care, which I also love.

7. I love hearts – hence the name Simple Hearts Jewellery.

8. I love bike riding and reading.

9. Guilty pleasures include chips, chocolate and watching Netflix.

10. I was born in Burnie but have lived in Launceston most of my life. I now live in Legana.

I hope you have enjoyed my little spiel. Remember if there is anything you like in my range in store or online you like but it isn’t the correct size, I can always custom make a piece for you. Thank you so much for the support.
