Sculptor, Maker, and artist Rebecca Rose creates metallic wearable narratives that are meant to be worn. Rose handcrafts “Sculpturings” out of bronze and silver, spending up to 140 hours on a single piece. She first collects and arranges tiny objects and then begins to work her magic through the casting process. Meant to be both admired and worn, her rings are akin to wearable sculptures. She’ll be exhibiting at this weekend’s Orlando Maker Faire on September 13th and 14th.

This inspiring workspace is where Rebecca Rose falls into a focused trance as she gathers bits and pieces of toys and trinkets to assemble into teeny, tiny sculptures. Her walls are covered with her own original paintings and the works of other artists.
