Phoenix metalsmith Rebecca McNerney celebrates the intrinsic beauty of cast silver and its textural contrast with natural pearls and gemstones. McNerney's beads, slides, clasps, and chain links are designed in wax, and then cast in sterling silver. The elemental, handcrafted appeal of her work makes her a favorite of galleries across the US, Canada and Mexico. Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Rebecca McNerney channeled a lifelong passion for crafts into a new career as a jeweler in 2000. Rebecca currently lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her husband Michael, sons Pat & Connor, Max the dog, and 3 desert tortoises.
