A self-taught jewellery designer, Clare Hynes creates luxurious and contemporary hand-crafted jewellery.
Her designs have featured widely in the press including Grazia, Woman & Home, Irish Tatler, Irish Independent Newspaper, and Confetti magazine. And most recently were featured in the American series '9O21O'.
Clare Hynes was born and raised in the UK. She is now based, with her family, in Northern China. Previous to this, she lived in Ireland. She studied graphic design at Nottingham Trent University, and after graduating, began a successful career in magazine design, working for various women's magazines in London, Sydney and Dublin. It was during this time that Clare discovered her true passion in jewellery. A world-wide trip which took her to South America and South East Asia sparked a continuing fascination with semi-precious stones and their healing properties and traditions. Her collections incorporate vermeil gold, a wide variety of semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystals, beads, ribbon, resin flowers and fresh water pearls. Each piece is individually hand-crafted to the highest quality.
Clare is committed to designing beautiful stand-out pieces that are wearable, contemporary and luxurious. Pieces that can transform an outfit, and most importantly, pieces that make the customer feel wonderful.
