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 earrings seek to embody this contrast. As the positive shapes speak, so do the negative ones; two voices inhabiting the same space.

Claire Sommers Buck | Owner/Designer

A native Texan, Claire’s affection for handmade goods began at an early age on the wood floors of her parents’ dusty ceramics studio. In 2009, Claire attended Penland School of Crafts where she immediately fell in love with the tools, techniques and functionality of the craft of metalsmithing. A curiosity of ancient world cultures and an enthusiasm for travel continue to impact her work and practice. Yet, as far across the globe Claire wanders, she is always drawn back home to the quiet and calm of the southwest.

Claire Sommers Buck Jewelry is an independently owned, handmade jewelry line based out of Austin, Texas. Fresh and honest, the collections evoke ancient aesthetics and the ornament of a global culture. A dedication to craft, quality, and integrity of design is ingrained in every facet of the brand. All gemstones and metals are nationally sourced and each collection is designed and handcrafted in a humble East Austin studio. CSB Jewelry is a small team dedicated to the belief that soulfully produced items can truly enrich our lives.
