Rebecca Joselyn, Silversmith, Goldsmiths North

What is your current role?

I have two roles currently.

I am a full time Silversmith based in Sheffield and the Managing Director of ‘Rebecca Joselyn – Designs in Silver’.

I am also the Managing Director of Goldsmiths North which is an International Jewellery and Silverware selling event held at Cutlers Hall each July.


What does that involve, look like on a day-to-day basis?

For ‘Designs in Silver’ it can be anything from meeting a client to discuss a commission to beginning to hand make a new design or work on a new collection.

Goldsmiths North is about preparing and planning for this annual weekend event to take place at Cutlers Hall in July.


How did you get started working in STEM?

It began back in my college days where I found myself in the metalwork and jewellery workshop developing designs and ideas.


What qualifications did you take or gain along the way?

A BA Honours Degree in Metalwork and Jewellery Design aside from this I’m a freeman of the Goldsmiths Company in London and the Cutlers Company of Hallamshire.


Why do you love working in STEM?

I love creating new designs and working out how to manufacture them. It is great learning new processes and seeing my designs come to life! I love going to work every day and this is priceless.


What challenges have you faced in your career? And how have you overcome them?

I’m Dyslexic so I can find reading and writing side of things a real challenge.


What advice would you offer for someone joining the STEM sectors?

If you enjoy what you do, then go for it! Don’t give up and stick to the people who encourage and support you.


What do we need to do as an industry to attract and keep more women in STEM?

I think we need to shout about the successful women we do have in STEM and help support the new females coming into the industry.
