Wraps collection . . .

Wraps are something I have been making since graduating, they were the result of being inspired by handwriting, looking at the overlapping and interweaving lines drawn by the hand. Wraps were originally used in combination with the various other contrasting elements. Gradually they have developed into pieces on to their own, useful if you are wearing a necklace for instance with a wrap element along others, you may prefer to wear wrap studs for example, keeping it simple.

They remain an element amongst other contrasting elements, and they are also an established collection of their own comprising of nice weighty and tactile bangles which you may have spotted in my online shop already, there are also studs, necklaces, more recently brooches in the collection, and now I have a brand new hanging wrap earring that features a hand drawn silver lozenge top element. All are available in black or white sterling silver, and are now all available online . . .

I have added new work to my two online galleries, lovedazzzle and madebyhandonline. The work above is a selection  from both but you can click onto the links for more.

Lovedazzle and madebyhandonline are my two online galleries if you want to see and buy from the comfort of your sofa! My work mostly varies with each item made, so if you can’t see what you are after, if you are wanting a different colour way or necklace length for example, feel free to contact me (post@clarehillerby.co.uk) to discuss your preferences. I also post items here in the blog from time to time that you may be interested and again feel free to request more details on their whereabouts or availability. Alternatively I am happy to make bespoke items based on my current designs, from simple items to larger specials as in the ‘lovely necklace commission‘, more details on the progress of that commission coming soon!

Bunting!

After lots of interest in my bunting at previous open studio events, and seeing lots of searches for it here on my blog, I decided to set up an online shop for you to browse and buy my bunting, it is now open! (You can also find a link on my blog page, at the top of the right margin, so its easy to find in the future). It is all made by hand, by me, from original treasures I have found on my hunts for interesting old papers. I’ve hand cut circles from annuals, music books, vintage maps, added ribbon and machine stitched them in lengths of around 3m, then added loops to the ends for easy hanging, these are secured with found vintage buttons. I have to admit I have kept one myself and love it as it cheers up an otherwise boring plain white wall above my bed! I hope you like them, here are a few currently available in the shop . . .
