Rebecca comes to Arte Soleil from Milepost 275, a jewelry studio and creative design space located in Portland, Oregon. Our techniques include hand forging, texturing and forming of metals. Many of the stones and gems you see in our pieces are distinctive and one of a kind. We support sustainable practices and local artisans. A small selection of our work is featured on an Etsy storefront and we welcome appointments at the studio to view our entire collection.
The name ‘Milepost 275’ has special meaning. 30 years ago, we had a family workshop and home at Milepost 275 on the Alaska railroad. That off-grid homestead was complete with a team of dogs, a trap line, and blacksmith forge. Honoring that tradition, our local, family studio in Portland, Oregon now carries the name and creativity of that upbringing. Natural materials, stones, gems, unique reused items and other inspirations line the shelves with the hope that others find fond memories here as well.
