OOAK Jewelry by Claire Sommers Buck

The Jebena Necklace gets its name from the lovely fluted coffee pot used in traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremonies. Coffee is an integral part of Ethiopian culture and the coffee ceremony is considered to be the most important of social occasions. It is not only considered to be a sign of respect and friendship to be invited to one of these ceremonies, but drinking the coffee is also considered to be a spiritual journey.

The Jebena Necklace features a beautifully textured brass fluted collar that slides freely on a sterling silver chain. Necklace comes in both 16” and 18” chain lengths.

  • Materials include oxidized brass & sterling silver
  • Designed & handmade in Austin, TX
  • Sterling silver cable chain
  • Half moon piece measures approximately .5” long x 3” wide

CLAIRE SOMMERS BUCK HANDCRAFTED JEWELRY

As a jewelry artist, I am intent on making pieces that are timeless in form, comfortable to wear and long lasting. Inspired by my love of the natural world as well as folk and ethnic craft designs, my work seeks to adorn in an authentic and genuine way. My creative process is often stirred by a simple idea or shape. What follows is the design and fabrication of the jewelry. Throughout this process, I use traditional jewelry fabrication and casting techniques to carefully create each piece from start to finish. The materials I use include brass, silver and gold, along with precious and semi-precious stones. Although I produce multiples within my jewelry line, each piece is slightly imperfect revealing their individuality and personal story. All of my work is proudly produced in my quaint studio in East Austin, TX.

Thank you for stopping by!
