CLAIR CRAWFORD FOR HOT GEM – SILVER

Not many people know this,  but the boss at Hot Gem – Clair Crawford is originally a jewellery designer and silversmith, the name ‘Hot Gem’, was not only inspired by the idea of finding hidden gems in music, but in a general sense of beautifully created art.  Many of the artists Clair has worked with at Hot Gem are inspired by magic and nature, so we thought it apt to showcase this work here

I’d really missed creating things, so I  promised myself in 2018 I’d fill the creative void by working on a silver jewellery collection.
Clair has created one small collection inspired by nature and using the power of will and visualisation –
a compact selection of ‘telos’, objects used to focus on whilst harnessing energy, whether it be via meditation, magick, sex magick or visualisation.
She’s also started a collection inspired by historical tales of friend’s family, pieces which not only have a story behind them, 
but  include a little piece of that physical history in each piece.

Showcasing the ‘Magpie’s silver tales’ firstly with these two ‘Ivy’ pieces

The idea behind  the aesthetic of these came from a dream of finding little pieces of battered valuable history collected in a magpie’s nest, magpies like to collect shiny things. Both of these pieces contain one off copies of postcards which  belong to a close friend of Clair’s, who’s  great-aunt Ivy began working as a nanny for a wealthy Swiss family. Over the course of 1924-28 she sent many postcards back to her parents in Norwich from places like Switzerland, Austria, Romania and Marienbad (modern-day Czech). Via his grandmother they  found their way into his possession, nearly 100 years later, in perfect condition. A magnificent strong woman who never married, she lived to her 80s – a true inspiration <3
