About This Material Culture

Founded in 2014, This Material Culture is a handmade jewellery company based in Liverpool.

I’m Rebecca and This Material Culture is my jewellery heaven. I’ve always been fascinated by the things people wear and what it says about them. From a football shirt, to ancient Egyptian amulets to intricate tattoos, all these things have meanings and I find it totally fascinating. Material Culture is the archaeological term for the stuff of everyday life. It’s used to form our understanding of people in the past and what was important to them too. Then I added the ‘This’ to create a modern, interesting quirky brand that celebrates individuality and personality.

With buttons, toys and tiny seed beads I make unique pieces of jewellery that are full of fun and a little bit different. I’ve tried to make sure our jewellery is affordable, you don’t need to be a millionaire to wear awesome, handmade things. The value is in the pieces, the stories behind them and it’s personal meaning to you too.

We’ve traded all over the place, at markets, festivals and events and love meeting new people. Seeing our customers fall in love with the jewellery I’ve made is one of the best things in the world and it makes all this worthwhile. We’re also in some amazing independent stores, have worked with some awesome businesses and bloggers and are always on the lookout for new opportunities.

This Material Culture isn’t just handmade jewellery, it’s all about you, what you love and being proud of who you are.

So if you’re looking for unique gifts, awesome jewellery and a company who cares, you’re in the right place.
