Clairely Upcycled Jewellery (Upcycled Jewellery) by Claire Requa
2012 - 2013, Silver A'
Inspiration
A need to use material that would ordinarily go to waste. The decision was made to design products to be able to upcycle the materials from the production of my Claire de Lune Chandeliers. Thus CLAIRELY (obviously) was born. The name also reflects part my personal philosopy, which is to have transparency, clarity, in my life, and dealings.
Creativity
Beautiful, clear, upcycled acrylic is a wonderful and rewarding project. The pieces which make up collections all tell stories on their own or worn several together. They are meant to empower the wearer who can use the pieces with strong symbolism, and also create moods by the way the pieces are combined when wearing.
Design Challenges
As my experience has been in lighting and decor products, the addition of another area/genre of products has its challenges in marketing.
Production Technology
Laser-cutting allows for complete freedom of expression when designing the pieces.
