About Wild Coast Silver

Thanks for dropping in to the Wild Coast Silver store!

~ About me ~
I'm Rachel and I design and create all of the pieces in my store. I have always had a fascination with jewellery and have been making pieces since my teens (which is a while ago now....). I have taken courses in silversmithing in the UK and Sydney over the last few years and have been making and selling pieces since then.

I am based in Coffs Harbour on the stunning Mid-North Coast of New South Wales. For a girl from a rainy city in the UK, I find it hard to believe that I live somewhere that has endless sunshine, beautiful beaches and rugged coastline. No wonder I'm inspired to make pieces that evoke the colours and textures that I see around me. Materials I use include fluorite beads that perfectly reflect the greens, blues and purples of the sea; and oxidized sterling silver Bali beads that conjure up the textures and shadows of shoreline rocks and shells. Materials and designs then come together to give a boho chic twist to the pieces I create.

~ About Wild Coast Silver ~
As well as loving to work with sterling silver, I started to create my own jewellery because I struggled to find pieces that I really wanted to wear. Something that is distinctive but not too ornate; good quality but affordable; and versatile enough to wear all the time, whatever I’m doing and whoever I’m with. And more than anything, something that enables the wearer's individuality to shine through. The creations I made for myself to meet those needs led to the establishment of Wild Coast Silver.

We are all different shapes and sizes and, of course, have our own tastes, preferences and personalities. Which is why you are given the choice to customise pieces where possible. Each necklace has alternative chain lengths and I am happy to discuss further variations to length and other aspects of jewellery design so that we can come up with something together that's just what you're looking for.

Each piece comes wrapped in tissue paper and placed in a hessian gift bag which is perfect as a present for yourself or others. If you are buying something as a gorgeous gift, please let me know and I am happy to include a message and post directly to the recipient. Just contact me via the 'Email seller' link on the left or email me, Rachel, directly at: wildcoastsilver@gmail.com

~ About you... ~
The most important part of the Wild Coast Silver story is you! My jewellery is designed for those of you who want to express your individuality through what you do, the conversations you have and the clothes and accessories you wear.

Do you really need jewellery to survive? Probably not – but life can get pretty challenging at times and you definitely need to find ways to spoil yourself and feel good about who you are. I hope that you will find something that suits exactly that purpose in my store.
