Her life in the orient shows in the choice of materials used in her jewelry. Like in this pearls and porcelain necklace. The beautiful blue beads wonderfully set off the white pearls.
Claire is a 3rd grade elementary teacher during the day, and a jewelry designer after hours. And her designs are great. Being a teacher, she understands how important school spirit is, so she has a number of pieces of jewelry in her shop which you can custom order in your own school colors. Like this cool crimson and gold necklace.
Personally, my favorite is this turquoise and tigers eye necklace. I just love the blue with the brown and gold.
Her blog is a great mix of features and support of other artisians, mixed with bits and pieces of her life and travels. When you stop by her blog, be sure to leave a comment to say hello!!!!
