Claire Gent

Claire designs and makes contemporary jewellery from ber home workshop on the edge of Dartmoor. She has several ranges to choose from, some are made from sterling silver, some from anodised aluminium, and some are a combination of both. Her inspiration comes from many sources, but of course living on the edge of Dartmoor means flora and fauna feature massively in her designs. She is also influenced by fashion, illustration and the craft world and would love to extend her skills into other disciplines.

Before making jewellery Claire was working as a product designer and playing around with jewellery making in her spare time, when she decided to study for a BTEC in silversmithing in the evenings. She finished in 2010 then left her job, moved to Devon and had her son all in the space of a year not returning to making until the end of 2011 when she started experimenting with aluminium.

Claire loves working for herself as she has full creative control over her ranges and can move in any direction she decides and of course it fits in perfectly with family life. Claire feels incredibly fortunate to do what she loves as a job, and appreciates each and every customer for liking her work enough to buy it.
