About

Handmade accessories, cards and gifts from Cambridge

Claireabellemakes began in July 2012 in Cambridge, UK.

My vibrant home city constantly inspires me and challenges me to be creative. The cobbled streets are filled with bicycles and historic buildings and the hustle and bustle of the river boats are surrounded by flower-filled meadows. I work from home in a quiet studio space by the river and ride my bicycle wherever I go.

Claireabellemakes is not just about the products as wearable items. My products communicate life in Cambridge and the moments or things I find inspiring about my city. I guess you could say it’s a piece of me. Each item has a connection to my everyday life and surroundings and being able to share a part of such a beautiful place feels pretty special. The bicycle bracelets capture my daily cycles around the city and the floral rings take me back to flower filled meadows along the colleges. The Scrabble inspired makes not only share my word geek side, they also capture the academic, bookish nature of my home town.

I strive to source good quality supplies so I am able to provide durable, yet affordable products. I get excited by the possibilities to transform my inspirations into a gift or personal item that can be treasured and worn with love. I want people to know the story of why I made it. I can’t think of anything more satisfying that passing on a little piece of my city through a handmade item.

In addition to my Etsy store, I also write a creative blog where I share DIYs, handmade finds, business and lifestyle tips and snippets of my life in Cambridge including pretty bike rides! I strongly advocate the handmade lifestyle and use my blog as a platform to share this passion and connect with fellow makers. http://claireabellemakes.com/blog
