Crystal ClarkeJewellery Artist Maker
Jewellery Handmade in Mixed Media, Textiles, Chainmaille, Titanium, Niobium, Silver, Copper, Beads and Gemstones. Each Piece is designed and handmade individually which guarantees an original piece of Jewellery.
I’m passionate about designing and making jewellery from the raw materials. I love using and experimenting with metals, fibers, yarns, wool, paper and more… I love colour, patterns and shapes using them in my jewellery.
I mainly create unique mixed media jewellery but I also have a passion for all sorts of beads and gemstones, I love creating bead and gemstone jewellery as well as my mixed media jewellery.
I have always been creative, went to Art College did an Art and Design Foundation Course and learned about Fashion and Textiles, Three Dimensional Design, Photography, Fine Art, Graphic Design and Art History. I have always had a passion for Crystals, Rocks, Minerals, Fossils, Beads, Jewellery Making, Art and Crafts.
I love to Draw and Paint using Coloured Pencils, Watercolours and Acrylics.
The Crafts I also enjoy are Batik and Tie Dye and love doing my own Tie Dye T-Shirts, also Crochet and Knitting in which I was taught by my late nan at a very young age, I love to learn new techniques and experimenting with different materials.
Crafts that are on my list of learning and trying are Lampwork Glass Bead Making, Fused Glass, Candle Making in alsorts of different shapes (I love candles especially the fragrant ones) and Lapidary.
I get my inspiration from motorbike art and effects especially 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.
Loves Motorbike and Cake!
