We sat down with one of our favorite jewelry designers, Rebecca Zeijdel-Paz, of Beck Jewels to hear more about what inspires her. Each piece of Becky's jewelry is carefully handcrafted in Brooklyn, a testament to her passion for quality and sustainability. Committed to sourcing gemstones for their healing and transformative properties, each piece tells a unique story shaped by her travels and love of art, color, history and culture. Not only do her pieces fit beautifully with our collections, but our collective passions align perfectly.
What inspired you to start Beck Jewels?
I love creating with my hands. Years ago my dear friend taught me to make jewelry after a trip to Italy where I stumbled unto a little market filled with incredible vintage beads. I’ve been creating jewelry in the Caribbean for many years now, but it was almost two years ago that I decided to launch in America and internationally— my husband nudged me in this direction and I’m eternally grateful!
How would you style the jewelry with our pieces?
I’m inspired by Figue's ability to layer upon layer mismatched pieces. That’s how I envision our pieces— worn effortlessly, with fun and following zero rules!
What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about positive energy and sustainability. We handcraft here in Brooklyn. Why? Because I want to ensure the hands that make your jewelry are happy hands! I’m passionate about positive energy, working with gemstones that speak to me and using materials that will stand the test of time.
What's your dream destination?
I’m eternally in an escapism state of mind. Going home to Curacao is always a dream as I get to be with family. Other than that, I’m open to any new destination that comes our way!
What's next for Beck Jewels?
Who knows?! I don’t like to plan too far ahead, I’m open to anything that comes our way!
Anything else you would like us to know?
Being part of the Figue family, a beautiful community with likeminded souls, is bliss! I think following heart and mind brought us here... your heart follows your passion and your mind sets your goals, when you follow both and surrender to the universe you’re lead to where you‘re meant to be.
