Claire McSweeney

Claire has always had a strong connection with New Zealand’s natural environment. Her work focuses on an experimentation of form using hand piercing, casting and fold forming techniques resulting in jewellery that references and celebrates the beauty of specific native plants. 

Claire is now based in Wellington where her jewellery is handmade.  Claire has strong family connections with the West Coast of the South Island where much inspiration and material for her pieces are sourced.
