Suzanne Claire is a designer / maker of contemporary jewellery based in Manchester.
Influenced by the world around, Suzanne Claire’s diverse collections are beautifully handcrafted in silver. By changing the original surface texture, each piece is individually enlivened.
Her latest collection concentrates on designs influenced by textile paraphernalia, combining textured silver, crocheted and French knitted silver wire.
“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.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
