Having initially studied sculpture she is curious about materials and how they may be manipulated and constructed beyond traditional methods. She employs a spectrum of techniques from hand forging to computer design and reproduction to achieve unique results.
Her sculpture background gives a truly three-dimensional approach to each piece. Her work often features open structures borrowed from architecture or nature, which lend complexity and fragility to designs.
Working in gold and silver, precious and semi-precious stones Claire is best known for her rings to date. Her award-winning work has been recognised by The Goldsmiths’ Company and the British Jewellers’ Association.
