I am in the process of updating my website with a list (photos, description and price) of the jewellery pieces available to purchase this autumn and winter, ready to be offered for Christmas.
It will also be possible shorty to find a selection of my collections in The Shop in Witney.
From Archaelogy to Jewellery Designer
I am a French expatriate living in an Oxfordshire stone cottage where I design and create jewellery from, using traditional silversmithing and goldsmithing techniques.
I like to sit at my workbench, surrounded by my tools, with music in the background, that is where my inspiration comes to life, in this little bubble. My creative process and design inspiration comes from all the different paths I took in my life.
Each creation of Cloelea Jewellery has a story behind it, from the winged creations inspired by French Art Nouveau to the textured effects I love to use, that are a reminiscence of the worn aspect of archaeological artefacts dugged up from the ground. I also like to let my imagination be guided by memories of inspiring places I have visited or quotes from books and poems I have read.
Art has always appealed to me as it represents a different way of communication, and jewellery in particular, because it creates a more intimate dialogue. All the pieces I design are meaningful, they are like little poems or messages. It creates a dialogue between the maker and the wearer, and in turn between the wearer and the people around.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have a question or if you would like to have one of the designs personalised. I am also very happy to take on custom orders.
