OOAK Jewelry by Claire Sommers Buck

The Meru Studs are an interpretation of Mount Meru. In both Hindu & Buddhist mythology, Mount Meru is a golden mountain that is considered to be the center of all the physical, metaphysical and spiritual universes. It is the dwelling place of the gods. As the world axis, Mount Meru reaches down below the ground, into the nether regions, as far as it extends into the heavens. All of the principal deities have their own celestial kingdoms on or near it, where their devotees reside with them after death, while awaiting their next reincarnation.

Using small brass beads & sterling silver wire, each earring is hand-fabricated in her studio in East Austin.

  • Oxidized brass & sterling silver
  • Sterling silver ear posts & nuts
  • .25” wide x .75” long

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!
