Forest and Cove is Rebecca’s idea of the perfect creative hub. Set in the historic market town of Romsey, Forest & Cove is a place that feels warm and welcoming to all, whether you’re looking for a beautifully handcrafted gift or to fill a little creative hole in your life.
We stock a range of unique handcrafted products from a select few British designer/makers. Alongside this, we host a wide variety of creative classes and courses by both resident and guest artists.
Who works at Forest & Cove?
Rebecca Jackson is the owner and creative mind behind Forest & Cove. Rebecca has successfully run her own jewellery shop from Salisbury for the past 6 years where alongside making and selling, Rebecca has taught jewellery making experience days and long term courses.
Rebecca designs and makes several of her own collections, creates bespoke commissions and has a real passion for remodelling, she specialises in creating beautiful contemporary items from old sentimental jewellery items. Using as much of the original item as possible from the metal to the gemstones.
You’ll find Rachel in the shop most days. She’s wonderful at helping you choose the perfect gift or find the perfect piece to fit into your home. She has a great eye for colour and she always knows the best flowers to fill your handmade vases with. Rachel also teaches all the Floristry classes we hold here at Forest & Cove.
You can usually find Carly in the shop at the weekends. She has a fabulous eye for artwork and is excellent at helping you find the right piece to add to your collection or just the right colour frame to bring out the colours in your new artwork.
She’s a brilliant multimedia artist in her own right and makes the beautiful stained glass pieces you can find around the shop. She will also be teaching some of our in-house classes here with us too!
Simon is the unsung hero of the business and Rebecca’s husband. He helps with everything from our accounts and stock systems to building our workbenches, fitting our tools and so much more. You’ll likely see him helping out in the shop during the school holidays or on the weekends. This isn’t his full-time job but we couldn’t do without him.
Henry & Otis
Now if you’ve been into the store you’ll likely have met Henry & Otis already! They are Rebecca’s dogs and are often poking their heads over the gate in the back room looking for strokes from customers.
