You too? Then come on in, take a seat and pull a card.
If you like your jewellery unique and unusual, I can’t wait for you to delve into the darkly delightful offerings I’ve conjured up in my Nottingham workshop, just for souls like you.
I’m Clare, the creatrix behind Bonearrow jewellery.
I was always a bit of a weird kid. Fascinated with the macabre (one of my favourite games was playing dead), my best friend was our family dog, Bracken. I was quite happy being strange and unusual though and the last thing I wanted was to be like everyone else.
I loved working with metal and making things, so I did a diploma in design and a degree in Silversmithing when I finished school.
But I thought I could never be a jewellery designer because I didn't like the kind of jewellery that was commercial.
So I worked dead-end office jobs I hated for years, meandering through life until my mid-thirties. It never occured to me then that if I made things I wanted to wear other people might just love them too.
Each Bonearrow design celebrates the mystery and magic of the world around us, the macabre and the mystical. It just so happens that in the making process, my own awe and inspiration infuses into each piece of jewellery I make and it becomes a magical talisman in itself.
I never thought I had any special talent or gift, until I started making jewellery that made my souls sing. Now my customers tell me they can feel the magic in the pieces I create.
Magical, meaningful jewellery for misfits
Eight years on, I’m still conjuring up alternative jewellery on a bench my dad made in my little shop in Sneinton Market, Nottingham, England,
You might also be pleased to know that all Bonearrow jewellery is vegan and I will never use animal products like leather in my designs. All Bonearrow Jewellery is made with recycled metal and ethically sourced gemstones and crystals wherever possible. All our packaging is either recycled or recyclable and plastic-free wherever possible, and we’re still working on becoming more sustainable.
