Clare Lloyd is a jewellery designer-maker based in Somerset.
“I have always been completely 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 and I can think of.”
Each element of the jewellery – from each individual bead to the sterling silver findings – is made entirely by hand by Clare in her studio in the Silk Mill in Frome.
Each item is carefully and meticulously made and her aim is to make colourful, affordable and comfortable jewellery that is a pleasure to wear. She tries to keep the shapes and styles of the jewellery simple to allow the colour to become the focal point.
