Claire grew up in Yorkshire and was often taken on long walks by her family who taught her to identify plants by their leaves and birds by their song. Claire's fascination with the beauty surrounding us continued through her art college years where she made vessels and jewellery from bark, leaves and flowers foraged from the forest. Today Claire creates stunning jewellery collections celebrating the sculptural plants and tiny creatures of the great British countryside. Claire translates the delicacy and fleeting beauty of nature into more permanent objects of desire. Through the use of predominantly silver, with touches of gold, a distinctive style has been created.
