Rebecca Bashara’s jewelry springs from the melding of a naturalist and a natural-born artist/metalsmith. Her original designs reverberate with the peace, freedom and spontaneity of a walk on the beach, a hike along a river trail, a climb up a mountain peak, or a meditation in the deepest of woods. Her jewelry contains stones from the Puget Sound and the Columbia River Gorge. As a child in Iowa, Rebecca was fascinated by the miniature and spent hours looking at grasshoppers and other tiny objects of nature. This interest led her into the art of jewelry design and metalsmithing.
