Jeweler Rebecca Zelis grew up in New England, surrounded by beaches, mountains and river valleys that influence her work with their beautiful river stones, pieces of sea glass or unique fossils or shells.

Zelis was educated at Rhode Island School of Design where she studied Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design, receiving a BFA. She now lives in Vermont with her husband and two children, working in a renovated Granary that houses local painters, sculptors and potters. She searches the shores of Lake Champlain for stones, natural buttons or arrowheads and the beaches of Cape Cod and Maine for sea glass and shells.
