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.
