Rebecca moved to San Francisco in 1995 from Washington D.C. to pursue graphic design and advertising. Five years later her desire for creative expression led her to explore an alternate career path. She began to further develop the metalsmithing skills she had acquired while studying at Savannah College of Art & Design. Her early collections gained esteem at local shows and boutiques propelling her work into a more refined aesthetic. Over the years Rebecca Overmann has become known for specializing in one-of-a-kind pieces, handmade in her San Francisco studio.
