When Rebecca Koster opened her silver smithing studio in 2015 , Melbourne welcomed a new age of minimalist jewellery to its already vibrant creative-collective. Working with 100% recycled sterling silver, sourced from like minded Australians, Rebecca incorporates ethically acquired stones or synthetics into her pieces - because no one can tell the difference and she's not an asshole.
