Insights on Clairely Upcycled Jewellery

Claire Upcycled Jewelry

Claire Requa, the creative mind behind the winning design Clairely Upcycled Jewellery demonstrates “Beautiful, clear, upcycled jewellery, designed out of a need to use the waste material from the production of Claire de Lune Chandelier. This line has developed into a considerable number of collections – all telling stories, all representing very personal glimpses into the philosophies of the designer. Transparency is a vital part of the designers own philosopy, and this is reflected her by the choice of acrylic used. Apart from the mirror acrylic used, which itself reflects light, the material is always transparent, color or clear. CD packaging reinforces the concepts of repurposing. ” To learn more visit:

Claire says:

My jewellery is inspired by my retrospective look at my childhood and the pleasant memories there. I am strongly inspired by the influences that were present in the 60’s and 70’s. Acrylic is a wonderful material to work with, very rewarding. Although this is just a plastic, the value comes in the designs and the work connected to having a finished product. The last collection LUCKY DOZEN, had it’s start with 2012 being the year of the Dragon, so in addition to dragon pendants, this collection grew with symbolism of horses and horse shoes, and had to include pieces celebrating Jamaica’s 50th year of Independence.
