Clifton Rocks is owned by Clare Chandler, who has been designing and making jewellery for over fourteen years. After graduating from Leicester’s De Montfort University with a BA (Hons) in Metal Smithing and Jewellery, Clare spent seven years developing her skills before setting up her own shop.
Sammi first began making jewellery around seventeen years ago when a friend taught her some basic silversmithing skills. With some borrowed tools, she spent many a night in her little cottage in Wales studying and practising various techniques and was soon completely hooked!
Jacks is one of the UK’s top emerging talents in contemporary jewellery design. Having completed a BA Hons in jewellery in the early 90s, she went to work for a top name in the jewellery design industry for eight years before launching her first independent collection.
Jane has been designing and making jewellery for over 13 years. Following graduation from Loughborough University in 2003 with a BA Hons in Jewellery and Silversmithing, Jane moved to Bristol to work in the busy workshop of an independent jeweller.
Anny Ching Chin Hsieh
Ching Chin Jewellery
Anny Ching Chin Hsieh is a contemporary jeweller currently based in Bath/Bristol. She is particularly fond of the miniature world, for the almost hidden surprise it gives to otherwise conventional pieces.
The work is inspired by irregularities found in architecture and skylines. Long geometric shapes are combined to create a finish that is minimal and structural but with an organic quality. Long thin baguettes are the favoured stone shape with a love for bi-coloured pieces, each hand picked.
