About RFJ


ABOUT REBECCA:
Rebecca Fogg is a Hudson, NY based designer and maker. Rebecca learned how to make jewelry when she was 15 and quickly fell in love with the art. She took it upon herself to learn the basics of metalsmithing, through internships, apprenticeships and a formal education in multidisciplinary design from Parsons the New School for Design. In January 2018 Rebecca moved to Hudson, NY to open up her own studio. 

Growing up in a small town in Vermont, ideas of sustainability and ethical practice were ingrained in her at a young age. The simple philosophies of being conscious of water usage, waste, locally grown products, and caring for your neighbor have had a huge influence on the designer she has become. 

Rebecca is inspired by naturally occurring shapes and textures. Her design process is to work directly with raw materials and let them speak for themselves. She strives to stay away from the 'fashion jewelry' market in order to create heirloom quality jewelry that will last to be passed down through generations.
 
ABOUT OUR MATERIALS:
The sourcing of materials is the most important part of creating transparent products. All of the metals used are recycled. All diamonds are certified conflict free and we strive to have our colored gemstones either be recycled or from sources who adhere to The Quality Assurance and Fair Trade Gems Protocols. 
Studio practices are kept as low impact and as environmentally friendly as possible.
