Specialising in contemporary jewellery, Melbourne based Claire Taylor is inspired by traveling, collecting, and nature. Her designs often develop by experimentation with textures. Various embossing techniques used capture the impression of fragile materials in metal.
She has been working as a jeweller since 2002, after finishing a Bachelor of Applied Art in Metal & Jewellery. Previously she travelled extensively in Europe and Asia, and worked with jewellers in India and Ireland. She exhibits her Australian handmade jewellery locally and internationally, most recently with a solo show in Barcelona.
Her work is available in silver and gold and she also custom makes pieces to order, incorporating stones and other materials. Each piece is individually hand made. Claire's own store and workshop Atelier Claire Taylor is open to the public, in Fitzroy, Melbourne. Here you can choose from her extensive ranges, be involved in the design process of your own personal piece, and see jewellery being made in her open plan studio.
