Claire English is a contemporary jewellery designer working from London. The Special Jewellery Company is the realisation of Claire's dream to establish an unmistakably English luxury fashion jewellery brand.
Jewellery designed by Claire combines her interest in curios, collage and fine craftsmanship with a witty, irreverent and playful design philosophy.
Claire's desire to make beautiful ever lasting jewellery is a response to the hectic, disposable and at times superficial nature of contemporary culture.
Claire's whimsical designs are informed by her insatiable interest in the narrative potential of the objects that surround us.
Claire has a magpies propensity for gathering themes and stories to incorporate into her designs.
She sees herself as a 21st Century bricoleur, adept at presenting familiar items in mischievous and unexpected ways. Claire's cheerful & cheeky little dog Alban, loves going to the workshop with her everyday. He sleeps whilst the magic of making special jewellery happens!
