“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.”
John Muir, naturalist, explorer, and writer (1838-1914)
My name is Rebecca Haas, and I am a native Vermonter who has traveled the globe, mastering my jewelry craft. I have studied jewelry design at Penland School of Crafts, The University of Mexico in San Miguel de Allende, and New York University. Upon graduation from university I founded my jewelry business in a studio on the Red Hook waterfront, in Brooklyn, NY in 2000. I am thrilled and grateful to say that in the intervening years my business has steadily grown and evolved through perseverance, some good luck, and lots and lots of hard work. I am a member of the Vermont Handcrafters Association and the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, and my work can be found in many galleries and boutiques across the country, as well as various international locations.
In 2008 my husband Tom and I decided it was time to leave Brooklyn life behind and move home. So together we pulled up stakes and made the big leap to Chester, VT. We recreated my studio in a unique and lovable converted dairy barn, and I now find my creativity greatly nurtured and inspired by the tranquil setting outside my studio windows. I make my pieces primarily from formed and hammered wire of various gauges, and each piece is handmade to order for you by me. My work is minimalist in sensibility and draws its strength and definition from its balance, delicacy and graceful investigation into positive and negative space. I aim to make designs that are elegantly simple, carefully made, and so light and easy to wear that you can feel great about wearing your Rebecca Haas Jewelry every day and for any occasion.
At Rebecca Haas Jewelry I really want you to feel really good about the pieces you buy from me. And I feel that it is important to do what we can to be good stewards of this world and our global community. Which is why I take great care in sourcing my materials ethically. All of the materials that go into Rebecca Haas Jewelry pieces are either recycled, or sourced from ethically responsible suppliers. Chains and raw materials are manufactured in safe factories in either the US or Europe from recycled or conflict free metals. I believe we all chose to spend our money matters in the world, and I aim to do all I can to insure healthy and happy workers all the way through the process, from the mines to your hands.
