About Colour Designs Jewellery
Colourful and unique jewellery made entirely by hand......
My name is Clare and I live and work in the market town of Frome in Somerset. I love to make beautiful things and for as long as I can remember, I have always made 'stuff.'
I started learning to make jewellery from precious metals about twelve years ago and was lucky enough to be taught by a very talented jeweller, Rachel Kerrison in Bath.
I have always been completey obsessed with colour and I wanted a way to incorporate colour into my designs without using gemstones and so I started to experiment with polymer and resin clays. These versatile materials enable me to control the colours and create as many shades and tones as I can think of.
Each element of my jewellery - from each individual bead to the sterling silver findings - is made entirely by hand by me in my little studio is the Silk Mill in Frome. I am registered with the Birmingham Assay office so all of my jewellery (with the exception of earrings and items below the legal weight requirement of 7.78 grams) will be sent away for hallmarking.
Each item is carefully and meticulously made and my aim is to make colourful, affordable and comfortable jewellery that is a pleasure to wear. I try to keep the shapes and styles of the jewellery simple and allow the colour to become the focal point.
I absolutely love to make jewellery and take a complete pride in creating something beautiful and of exceptional quality and I hope you enjoy wearing my jewellery as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
You can find a selection of my jewellery range in my online shop and through a selection of galleries across the UK. I also take part in various markets and fairs throughout the year so please check my events page to see where I will be.
I also make a range of vintage inspired bridal accessories and jewellery through my other business - Vintage Button Bridal Designs.
