Hi! My name is Clare Sneddon. I live in Ayr, on the West Coast of Scotland.
Although I have a degree in Education I have been making jewellery for many years as a hobby.
My jewellery is made using lovely fine copper wire, which is coated in coloured enamel finish. I have sourced beautiful hand made earwires, which are non tarnishing colours. The base metal is copper, coated in silver and has a coloured enamel finish to prevent tarnishing.
I am a self taught jewellery maker and make each piece by hand myself. I have discovered the art of weaving, winding, stitching and crocheting wire with beautiful glass beads, crystals, silks and faux pearls, to create elegant contemporary jewellery and hair pieces.

Living by the sea and rugged Scottish hills, my inspiration is full of texture and ever changing seasonal colours which are reflected by my use of beautiful colours of wire and beads.
Having spent a lot of time in London, the colours, uniqueness and carnival atmosphere of Camden, Nottinghill and the sophistication of Covent Garden pay homage in my jewellery design. Many hours have been spent in these London areas strolling through these colourful streets and shops where I find unusual beads and finds to add to my work.
I truly hope you enjoy browsing my etsy shop and should you choose to buy I hope that you too are touched by the rainbow!
