The Bonearrow Story
Welcome to Bonearrow. I'm so happy you found us! If you like your jewellery a little less ordinary, something unique and unusual, just like you, then you're in the right place.
I'm Clare, maker, designer and founder of Bonearrow. I make darkly delightful, alternative jewellery in my little workshop in Nottingham, England, on a jewellery bench that my dad made. I founded Bonearrow because I wanted to wear jewellery that meant something, that was as magical and meaningful as the crystals I collected. So, all Bonearrow Jewellery is made with recycled metal and ethical sourced gemstones and crystals wherever possible.
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 had no idea what to do with my life after school so I just did the things I liked, a diploma in design and a degree in Silversmithing, but I still felt lost until 7 years ago when I found my place in the world by creating Bonearrow. I thought I could never be a jewellery designer because I didn't like the kind of jewellery that was commercial. It didn't occur to me then that if I made things for myself, that I wanted to wear, other people might just love them too. And that's how Bonearrow was born. I made a couple of pieces for myself, The Bondage Ring being one of them, and then for my friends, and then for their friends and that's how it started. All the pieces I make I'm in love with! Sometimes so much that I find it hard to let them go to their new home, but it makes me so happy when someone wears one of my pieces every day and loves it as much as I do.
If you've always been called a weirdo too you'll fit right in here at Bonearrow, where weird is cool and we believe whole heartedly in our own power. Take a look around the shop, read what other customers have said in the reviews and if you have any questions at all you can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a message on instagram - I'd love to hear from you!
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. Also, all our packaging is either recycled or recyclable and plastic free wherever possible.
