OOAK Jewelry by Claire Sommers Buck

The Nopal cactus or ‘Prickly Pear’, as we know it in English, was the lifeblood of ancient cultures in Mexico and continues to be a popular food and nutritional plant in Mexican culture. Also,¬†interestingly enough, it is the state plant of Texas. No wonder we are fascinated with the Nopal around here!

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!
