Today we welcome Clare Sheridan-Wallis Jewellery for the first time, who we look forward to having this Sunday 3rd December at Worthing Charmandean. Find out a little more about her…
Please introduce yourself and your brand….
Based in Hampshire, Clare creates contemporary designs inspired by natural forms and calm environments of the surrounding New forest. She uses different techniques and processes, such as etching, to apply text, patterns and symbols into the surface of silver. Found objects and segments from old book pages also reside in Clare’s work. These collectively become metaphors to evoke memories as well as creating new ones for the wearer. The motion of the past has always been the fundamental theme in her work. Every piece of jewellery is unique.
How would you describe your style and your creations?
Bespoke, hand-crafted designs
What do you enjoy most about your work?
One of the favourite things about my work is meeting customers and talking about the pieces. I have returning customers to craft fairs that turn up wearing my jewellery- this is such a wonderful feeling!
Commissions are also great fun, working with the client to create their unique design from start to finish is very satisfying.
What can we expect to find on your stall at So This is Christmas in aid of St Barnabas on Sunday 3rd December? And are you looking forward to taking part?
This is my first time at “So this is Christmas” so very much looking forward to meeting the locals! You’ll find a range of silver jewellery from mini hand cut leaf studs to etched chunky bangles.
Do you have a best seller?
My etched butterfly range are very popular. Out of the range the butterfly studs are my top seller.
Do you have any plans or ambitions for the future?
My dream is to have a little shop selling my jewellery where I can also have an open workshop so customers can come in and see how it’s done!
Do you have a motto or inspirational quote?
Do what you love and you’ll never have a problem with Monday!
Describe your Christmas in 3 words…
Family, carols, festive-spices!
