Claire Stratton

ILIFFE YARD

ABOUT

I am an external exhibitor at the Pullens Open Studios, based normally in Stroud Gloucestershire. I used to run a shop in Clapham Old Town where I both made and sold my jewellery, so it’s always a pleasure to clock in with my South London roots.

My jewellery is very sculptural in feel. I specialize in rings, creating forms in silver and gold and combining them with carefully selected gemstones. I enjoy a rough pebble like stone as much as a bright reflective one, and choose colours that shift between the subtlest of blues and greys to the starkest of pinks.

I also make a collection of chunky silver rings, which feel both ancient and modern at the same time – roughly hewn as if dug up from the ground. My necklaces range from the classically simple to the talismanic – from a single pendant to a jangling cluster of emerging forms. Each piece has a character of its own, but all are lovely to feel and very wearable.

WHAT TO BUY

I make rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Work can be purchased from the collection or commissioned to suit.

Prices range from £50 – £4,000

 

FIND ME

I will be showing at DSDHA 8, Iliffe Yard.
