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.
I’m passionate about designing and making jewellery from raw materials. I love using and experimenting with textiles, silver, titanium, fibres, yarns, wool, paper, natures harvest and more… I love colour, texture, patterns and shapes to create unique pieces of jewellery.
I use recycled and varied materials and source some elements for my designs locally such as the sheep and alpaca wool, natures harvest from country and coastal walks.
To create my jewellery designs I use my mixed media process.
