REA HARFIELD – JEWELLERY
Working out of her Vancouver Island studio, Rea is known for her expressive one-of-a-kind iron jewellery which is light, strong, elegant, and bold. She is a metalsmith artist who pushes the boundaries in everything she creates using cutting edge techniques combined with centuries old metalsmithing practices. Each piece is hand fabricated. Texture is then applied using hammers, engraving, files, and salt water etching just to name a few. She incorporates specially formulated high karat gold alloys which are fused at high temperatures to iron as well as silver.
