CRYSTAL CLARKE ARTIST
Handmade Jewellery, Art, Decorative Metalwork using a variety of techniques in Mixed Media, Textiles, Chainmaille, Silver, Titanium, Niobium, Copper, Aluminium, Beads, Gemstones…
Each Piece is designed and handmade individually which guarantees an original piece of Jewellery, Art and Decorative Metalwork.

MY MIXED MEDIA PROCESS
I use varied and recycled materials to create a sheet as my base, the same as I would have a sterling silver or copper base sheet.
I hand texture the sheet using various techniques and use a pierce saw for cutting out pieces which are further enhanced to create my mixed media art jewellery in different designs. I then use an air brush and/or hand brush to paint, building up layers of colour and effect in a similar way to a motorbike artist but on a smaller scale for jewellery, art and decorative metalwork.

INSPIRATION
I get my inspiration from motorbike art and effects, the inspiration for my Art Jewellery Collection ‘A Fusion of Colour’ is from my paint job I had done on my motorbike which is a crystal rainbow drusy effect.

I also get inspiration from the changing seasons displaying their array of beautiful colours and textures that nature bestows on us.

CRYSTAL CLARKE BRAND
Jewellery Pieces have a Crystal Clarke branded makers tag and comes to you in a lovely Crystal Clarke branded gift box.

The precious metal jewellery over the legal weight is fully hallmarked with my personal makers mark (CC), this simply stands for Crystal Clarke. As well as my makers mark there is the date letter, metal purity, sterling silver mark plus the anchor denoting where the hallmarking took place which is the Birmingham Assay Office.

CREATIVITY
