Hi, I’m Sarah, the founder of Audrey Claude Jewellery, and your personal jewellery designer and maker.
Based in Cheltenham in the Cotswolds, I’ve been making jewellery for about 15 years and moved towards fine jewellery whilst designing my own engagement ring in 2013. I had a desire to use ethically sourced traceable gemstones and at the time not being able to find someone who could do this led me to design and create my own. Audrey Claude Jewellery was formed in 2015 and named after my two children Audrey and Claude!
Jewellery is so much more than ‘just a ring’ or ‘just a necklace’ it tells a story or who you are and of the moments in your life. My own love of all things beautiful came from playing with my mothers jewellery box when I was young. The forbidden luxury of opening the box and arguing with my sisters about who could try on what. Each piece was accompanied by stories of when it was worn and where it came from. It’s never just a ring, and that’s what I love!
My work combines my love of colour and texture and is often inspired by natural forms and the adornments of past civilisations. I love working with my hands and each piece is made by hand at my studio in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, using traditional techniques. As an artisan jeweller the raw materials are held and formed into the perfect design creating a piece of jewellery that tells your story.
My vision is to be the go to jeweller for conscientious people wanting to make a difference to the world socially and environmentally. I’m committed to producing fine jewellery using sustainable and responsibly sourced recycled metals, Fairtrade gold and responsibly sourced gemstones. I believe that the products we produce and choose are an extension of the values we hold dear.
