Becky, under the name of Priormade makes two ranges of jewellery. Colourful feather-like earrings from used bicycle inner tubes and geometric earrings and necklaces from reclaimed wooden pieces.
She loves knowing the history of things, especially nowadays as we reuse and up-cycle so many materials. She says that she always wonders, what was this before? Where did it come from?
She finds the individual story and journey of these recycled materials really interesting so includes with each item, for example: ‘Matty Hemmings – Pro BMX rider – popped during school workshop’ and ‘Teak – reclaimed from Weston Super Mare’s Grand Pier’.
Becky only uses Sterling Silver stamped with 925 because it turns something that was waste destined for the bin, into something really precious!
Everything is hand made and painted by Becky in her studio in Bristol.
All packaging is recycled.
