Clare’s aim is to fill the world with beautiful things! She loves to hand pierce ornate and intricate works of art which flatter the wearer and appear to be a natural extension of their own body.
For as long as I can remember I’ve had a passion for jewellery but been dismayed by the fact that what was available didn’t suit my style. I decided the best way to remedy the problem was to make my own jewellery.
I graduated from Curtin University of Technology with a Bachelor of Arts (Jewellery Design) in 2008 where I discovered I loved making jewellery even more than I loved wearing it. In my final year at University Skadi Jewellery Design was born. Now I do what I love so that I’ll love what I do.
I’ve always been completely enchanted by the beauty of Winter (snow especially) so I felt my business name should reflect this in the same way my designs do. Skadi is a frost giant and goddess from Nordic mythology. She is commonly associated with Winter, shadows and mountains and for me perfectly represents what my work is about; beauty, strength, uniqueness and wonderful stories.
