Ordered 2 rings for myself and my partner. Great communication with Claire, very friendly and made sure it was what we wanted. They were sent a lot quicker than the description time. Would highly recommend :)

About

Art is not simply a hobby, but an essential part of my life. I create because I must.

Claire Watson, the self-taught artist behind Blue Kitty Creations,
strives to create unique and beautiful pieces inspired from nature, her life, and imagination. From an early age, Claire was always creating something, whether it was sketching, origami, painting, or trying out her wood carving abilities on the family piano.

American by birth and Scandinavian by heart,
Claire has experienced a plethora of homes, schools,
and peoples across the globe. Following her parents during
their military career, it became the normal routine to move house
every couple of years, and in an ever changing life her art was a constant.
She loves living in Scotland with the dramatic landscapes and the even more dramatic and varied accents. With the close historical ties between Scotland and Scandinavia, she never feels too far from home.
Currently residing in Scotland, Claire’s artistic style and interests continue to evolve in the way of sketches, photography, painting, photo-manipulation, textiles, and jewellery making.

Her passion for jewellery was first sparked when she attended a medieval workshop, run by a Viking no less! He demonstrated an old Viking technique used for making chain necklaces. Referred to as Viking Knit, or Trichinopoly, she loved weaving together wire and started thinking of new ideas and new colours to bring it into the modern day world. She continues to teach herself new techniques for her paintings and silversmithing.

Her artwork has been described as dynamic, refreshing, intriguing and at times challenging and thought provoking.

Her bold use of striking colour schemes and flowing forms instill in the viewer responses from the serene to the invigorating.

Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS:
Rings- I will gladly make rings to size and with your choice of inscription on it. Please just message me to discuss options.

Custom copper and brass rings are £25+p&p and are ready within a week or less to post, once payment is received.

Custom Sterling Silver rings are £65+p&p. Please order in good time before you require these rings! Depending on the timing of my batches for hallmarking it can be 6-8 weeks before the ring is ready to post out to you. I am unable to guarantee it by a certain date, but I do aim to keep anyone from waiting too long for their orders.

I can do inscriptions in both Younger and Elder Futhark runes, so will show you your phrase in both versions if you are unsure of which one you would like.


CARE OF COPPER AND BRASS RINGS:
Due to the nature of the copper, brass and bronze metal, there may be a discolouration (greenish tinting) of the skin. This happens because the metal reacts with the natural oils in the skin. The extent of this varies from person to person.
This will be at its worst the first time you wear it.
The best thing to do is when this happens, take the ring off to wipe it down, wash your hands, and then put the ring back on. Repeat this occasionally, and the the reaction will lessen as you get used to it and its reaches a...."symbiosis" with your skin.
It also works to wash your hands thoroughly with the ring on, or wear it in the shower. You'll clean the green off and keep the ring shiny! (its what I do)
