All pieces are individually handcrafted, designed, made and finished in the UK.Leathers are hand cut, stitched, punched and sculpted by hand and all materials are sourced ethically.
Originally trained in BA (Hons) Textile Design (Mixed Media Textiles) at the arts-specialising De Montfort University, Leicester, UK.
Whilst studying, Claire experimented widely with sculptural fabric manipulation techniques. Fueled by her passion for innovation, and love for dramatic statement jewellery; she continued to create and develop handcrafted neck-wear and accessories.
