Helen Clarence is a bead artist and embroiderer who grew up in the North East of England but is now living in Limousin, France. Her interest in fabrics and embroidery was inevitable as home life as a child was surrounded by examples of needlework executed by her mother and grandmother. Interest in embroidery, beads and textile art expanded after completing a diploma in design and creative embroidery.
The jewellery is created with a needle and thread, weaving small glass beads, as well as semi-precious stones, crystals or pearls into unique pieces of wearable art and sculptures.
There are three collections of jewellery;
- Floriana: inspired by nature, recreations of flowers and insects and landscapes into wearable works of art. A collection of jewellery suitable for weddings and for romantics.
- Operetta: a jewellery collection for evenings and events, for balls, soirees and grand events or for something special to accessorize that little black dress.
- Liberte: A collection for confident women who celebrate their individuality. This collection is very versatile and can be worn during the day or for evening occasions. Colours a vivid and the jewellery is sculptural and always a talking point.
All of the jewellery is hand made in France, using the highest quality materials and each piece is unique.
