My name is Clare and I design and make beautiful, intricate and unashamedly feminine bridal accessories, hair adornments and jewellery for the hopelessly romantic. Everything is made entirely by hand by me using artisan and couture techniques in my little studio in a former textiles mill in the small market town of Frome, Somerset surrounded by beautiful countryside. For as long as I can remember I’ve always loved making pretty things and after studying fine art and literature at uni, I trained to become a jeweler. Once my sister got married in 2012, I became completely lost in the wonderful world of weddings eventually setting up my own business the following year.
My creations are hugely inspired by nature – especially flowers and foliage, soft subtle colour and light and also by the elegance and glamour of bygone eras. My designs capture the timeless beauty of days gone by but with a modern, contemporary feel. I’m also very much inspired by the wonderful women I get to work with and creating beautiful designs that become treasured possessions and part of your story is a complete privilege and joy.
Impeccable design and comfort are at the forefront of every piece I make – all headpieces and jewellery are designed to be incredibly lightweight to make sure that you can wear your accessories from early morning until dawn in complete comfort. Handmade ear wires and custom made bracelets and necklaces ensure the perfect fit and comfort for you.
I use the finest materials from Swarovski and Preciosa crystals to antique mother of pearl, freshwater pearls, the tiniest Japanese glass seed beads, hand dyed silk ribbons, antique lace and semi precious stones to create exquisite and detailed designs. All designs are made to order and you can choose from an ever growing collection of designs or commission me to make you something completely unique and bespoke to you. Appointments to visit the studio are always welcome or if you live further afield we can work together via email or telephone to create your perfect accessories.
