Cornish based artist Clare Mason grew up in the Worcestershire countryside and has always been inspired by the wonder and beauty of nature. An independent and talented artist from an early age; she left home at 15 putting herself through college and University and then moved to London to start her own business. Within 3 months of making her first piece of jewellery she had it for sale in The Designer Gallery amongst names such as Gucci and Dior in the illustrious Oxford Street Selfridges.
Her work incorporates the beauty and uniqueness of semi precious stones with Swarovski crystals and Fresh water pearls in all shades and colours creating a real feast for the eyes!! She weaves with Sterling silver wire and !8 carat gold as well as making divinely floating necklaces and bracelets with components set on fishing line giving the lovely illusion that the stones are floating around the neck or wrist.
Her work has been described by customers as “elegant, opulent, sumptuous, intricate, stunning “and she’s always told that her work is totally unique! Not a easy feat after 17 years of business!
The next 16 years would see her work in galleries and boutiques all over the country as well as having a regular clientele buying directly from her boutique stall at Camden market. This also bought attention to her creations from Channel 4 where she was featured as, ” The Pearly Queen of Camden” in a documentary called “The Market” where she was set against other designers in the bid to being successful in the competitive world of market trading and where on she was declared a “star!”
Clare now sells her work mainly through exclusive galleries all around the country and at her own gallery in St.Ives and Perranuthnoe in Cornwall along with her artwork and exclusive photography….follow her on Facebook; The gallery of Clare Mason and also The Gallery of Crafters.
