Rebecca Manners Collective is a global artisanal design studio dedicated to meaningful connections that last beyond any object. Our mission is to innovate and save craft from extinction, celebrate indigenous wisdom, empower communities and create a sustainable future through co-creation and collaboration.
We work with masters of craft globally making sure every community receives fair wages so they can sustain their practices.
We give editorial life to this unique culture in collaboration with our global community of creatives and we work to reinstate a fresh sense of excitement in the handmade through innovative learning programs for the new generation.
We work with like-minded brands, private clients and initiatives around the world who share our passion for beauty, creative rethinking and contemporary design that support the art of craft.
We develop creative strategies to keep ancient skills and techniques alive by applying an innovative and modern mindset throughout the entire design process.
We source locally whenever possible and only use certified responsibly sourced gems, up-cycled gold and repurpose where we can.
Unique handmade objects, both antique and new, are sourced from across Indonesia and Myanmar, representing the diverse cultures of the different regions.
We curate a selection of the artisans’ own creations with 10 per cent of all sales going straight back to local village communities through a trusted foundation.
Rebecca Manners, known as Bex, is an artisanal designer based between Bali and Europe. Her namesake design studio is built on the philosophy that bespoke jewellery and objects are deeply connecting to the human experience and have the power to enrich people’s lives, creator as well as collector. Having developed her own ‘Art of Slow’ approach through her work with artisans around the world, Bex currently works in close collaboration with Indonesian and Burmese masters of craft to create contemporary silhouettes while preserving traditional techniques.
Each piece is the labour of a meticulous design process, from the first sketch to passing through the hands of master artisans. Using solely ethical materials, sustainability is at the core of the studios’ ethos; up-cycled gold and certified responsibly sourced gems are used as part of Bex's mission to create an eco-system of environmentally friendly and ethical practices.
Moving beyond the notion of seasons and trends, instead, connectivity, humanity, transparency and spirituality are at the fore encapsulating the timelessness of each piece, made to be kept and cherished for a lifetime.
Born and raised in Menorca, Bex spent a decade working as a creative director and stylist in New York before launching her renowned jewellery brand Bex Rox London, globally known for bold statement pieces and a vibrant playful universe inspired by the natural world.
