  • Materials include oxidized brass, sterling silver & a carnelian gemstone.
  • Despite their size, these earrings are lightweight and are complete with sterling silver ear wires.
  • 2.5” x 1.5”
  • Hand made with love in Texas.

The Madrasa Earrings were the first piece I created in this collection and were inspired by the beautifully crafted archways that Morocco is known for. I love how elegant yet playful these earrings are. Completely handmade in my East Austin studio using age-old tools, each pair is carefully crafted and slightly unique. Materials include oxidized brass, sterling silver & carnelian gemstones. Carnelian is considered a stone of power and ambition and is said to awaken curiosity to those who wear it.

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!
