About Rebekah Brooks


Rebekah Brooks has been making jewelry ever since she was a child growing up in rural NH. Her parents were both working artists & she spent her days alongside them in the studio, making & creating as they did the same. Her later childhood took her to live in southern France & Tasmania, accompanying her parents on extended teaching residencies. These formative experiences provided a unique vantage point for art & culture that would embolden her own commitment to live a creative life.

Once out of college & living in New York City she had the opportunity to work with other artists, helping to realize projects and run businesses. The more she worked for others the more she was brought back to the unwavering desire to realize her own vision. In the mid 90’s Rebekah hired a friend to help with production & formally launched her own jewelry line. She spent the next ten years selling her jewelry wholesale to stores across the US, Europe & Japan.

In 2007, not long after leaving New York City for greener pastures in Massachusetts, she decided to open her first retail store in Northampton, Mass. Fulfilling a growing desire to be more creative with production and sell directly to the public, the shop found a supportive home and was a great success. In 2012, building upon a growing business, a beautiful jewel-box of a shop was opened in the heart of Harvard Square, Cambridge. In 2016, a third location was opened in historic Beacon Hill, Boston.

 

Designing jewelry for me is about creating something beautiful that’s fully realized only once it’s adorned.

What We Believe In

Sustainability
Sustainability

We recycle all of our materials, and use recycled materials whenever possible. We only use antique diamonds in our designs, as they are not only more sustainable but so much more beautiful. We use refurbished computers, and Rebekah even rides her bike to work!

Women-Led
Women-Led

Rebekah has built this company within the framework of feminism. In an industry dominated by men, she has had to work a lot harder to become successful. She now has a company of strong, smart, driven individuals (mostly women), who in working for us gain empowerment, and skills that help them realize their true potential in life.
