Claire uses a variety of mixed media materials to create jewellery at her home studio in Devon. Claire is a keen tea drinker and at university started to use tea as a material, as her experimentation progressed she became interested in the tradition of tea drinking and tea paraphernalia. Her continual interest in materials and processes helps her work progress, she finds her work develops best when working and experimenting.
Experimentation led to the mustard collection. These grew quite simply from a pot of yellow resin pigment and a teardrop shape in silver wire. Very quickly the collection included grey and white resin, brushed and oxidised silver.
