Fab Spring Accessories – Clara Francis jewellery
The London-born jewellery designer creates statement, yet elegant, pieces. Her unique trademark necklaces feature beautifully crafted three-dimensional butterflies and hummingbirds birds with fluttering wings.
Francis’ current collection also includes toadstool and hot air balloon pendants, handmade with colourful glass beads on long silver chains.
Another prominent piece is the ‘Fox’ necklace. A delicate fox face, made with rustic brown, burnt-orange and white beads, comes on either a silver or gold chain.
I first came across Francis in December at the Clothes Show Live, where I purchased a multi-pendant silver necklace. The piece consists of a solid silver wishbone, dove and lotus flower, as well as a beaded pink and cream butterfly, on a silver chain.
She also makes classic silver and gold pendants. Her spring collection includes a leaping hare and flying bee and fox and deer head designs.
Francis, a self-taught designer, was an actress before she switched to jewellery.
