About Crystal Clarke Jewellery: Moodboard Inspiration

I’m Crystal, a textile jewellery artist working from my Crystal Clarke Jewellery studio in rural Hartland close to the coast in North Devon.

My jewellery designs are hallmarked by the Birmingham Assay Office.

I have always been unconventional. I create free-form contemporary art jewellery designs showcasing an unconventional use of materials.

I believe a piece of jewellery should be unique and have a connection, whether a keepsake of your favourite pet hair, a favourite colour, a favourite shape, a reminder of a wonderful place visited, a birthstone and no matter where you are, you can wear and embrace the connection of the beautiful jewellery piece.
