OOAK Jewelry by Claire Sommers Buck

Turkey stands at the meeting place of east and west. Positioned between Europe and Asia has made it a cultural interface for centuries. While powerful empires dominated the country in the past, today it is a melting pot of modern and traditional influences. This contrast, or “tezat”, of culture and landscape is what makes Turkey such a unique place. The intersecting lines & contrasting shapes present in the Tezat cuff seek to embody this contrast. As the positive shapes speak, so do the negative ones; two voices inhabiting the same space.

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!
