Suzanne Claire is a designer / maker of contemporary jewellery based in Manchester. Influenced by the world around, her diverse collections are beautifully handcrafted predominately from silver.
Suzanne Claire's latest collection concentrates on designs influenced by textile paraphernalia.
My love for all things colourful and craft orientated blossomed during early childhood from observing two generations of women. I was inspired as a child, from my Mum, her Mum, my Great Auntie and my Nana. It was these same people who shaped my love of what today seems to be lost arts - sewing, knitting and other needle crafts.
This collection combines textured silver, crocheted and French knitted chains combined with stunning French knit patterned pieces. Delicate silver wire is lovingly handcrafted into French knitted tubes, these tubes are then flattened to create lasting imprinted memories of their former, fragile self.
