Rebecca Norman is known for her unique, limited production jewelry handcrafted at her Southern California studio.  Her modern, down-to-earth style is the result of an adventurous spirit and vast global life experiences. Each piece of Rebecca Norman jewelry is hand crafted at her studio in California.  Techniques include hand forging, hammering, soldering polishing, and stone setting. Metals used include sterling silver, 14k, 18k & 22k gold, bronze, brass and copper. Each piece is unique.  We work with two different casting companies and two plating companies - all are small businesses based in California, as are many of the numerous vendors and suppliers we work with. When you purchase Rebecca Norman Jewelry you are helping to keep small business and craftsmanship alive in the Golden State and we thank you!

Catherine Lanzl Designs: "I have been sculpting in various materials since my early teens, first with clay and then with jewelry wax. Natural textures and designs are often the inspiration for my work, and a keen sense of the absurd doesn't hurt. I very much enjoy blending different mediums together, such as metal and clay. I do computer designed jewelry work as well , and I own and operate a 4 axis mill. I am also a Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America, and one of their former staff gemologists".
