Handmade Jewellery in Mixed Media, Silver, Niobium, Copper, Aluminium. Contemporary Art Jewellery.
Some of my Art Jewellery Designs also include a variety of techniques using Textiles, Embroidery,
Chainmaille, Silver, Copper, Aluminium, Beads, Gemstones…
Each Piece is designed and handmade individually by me which guarantees an original piece of jewellery art.
MY MIXED MEDIA PROCESS
I use varied and recycled materials to create a sheet as my base, the same as I would have a
sterling silver or copper base sheet.
I hand texture the sheet using various techniques and use a pierce saw for cutting out pieces which are further enhanced to create my mixed media art jewellery in different designs.
I then use an air brush and/or hand brush to paint, building up layers of colour and effect in a similar way to a motorbike artist but on a smaller scale for jewellery.

INSPIRATION
I get my inspiration from motorbike art and effects, the inspiration for my Art Jewellery Collection ‘A Fusion of Colour’ is from my paint job I had done on my motorbike which is a crystal rainbow drusy effect.
I also get inspiration from the changing seasons displaying their array of beautiful colours and textures that nature bestows on us.
CRYSTAL CLARKE BRAND
Jewellery Pieces have a sterling silver Crystal Clarke makers tag with the brand logo and will arrive to you in a lovely gift box that has the Crystal Clarke brand logo on it.
