Mysterious Moldavite Fine Jewellery and Wearable Art. The Moldavite Collection is a collaboration between Claire Wiggins (Mysterious Moldavite) and Claire Acworth Jewellery both of North Wales UK Claire Acworth is a designer and maker of contemporary jewellery, working in silver and occasionally gold. Her work is organic and sculptural. Textured with hammer marks or imprinted with the delicate veins of a leaf, each piece is unique. She uses semi-precious stones as well as simple found objects such as pebbles or sea glass which are transformed into elegant new forms. Claire's work has been inspired by nature, by contemporary designers, and also by the rich bold designs of African jewellery and sumptuous silver of India. She welcomes commissions for weddings, anniversaries and other special occasions. Claire also breathes life into old unworn jewellery by using the original stones or gold to create a contemporary new design. For each commission she works closely with her customers to create their own distinctive designs, hallmarked by Edinburgh Assay Office. Claire Wiggins is a collector of Moldavite. She has been working with this amazing tektite for 20 years under the name Mysterious Moldavite. Early on, she was offered a damaged piece which her supplier described as an Ugly Duckling and he suggested she turn it into a Swan. From this
happy chance suggestion, grew a collection of beautiful pieces of jewellery and Claire's passion to create Swans even led her to develop her own skill of polishing broken pieces herself. Many of her pieces have been facetted and set abroad, in the USA, Goa, Egypt and Sri Lanka. The stones that are set in her pieces are often from gem collectors’ private collections, or direct from the Herkimer mines in New York State. All her pieces are borne of her passion to create an item of beauty and ultimately to bring joy to the wearer. Claire met Claire Acworth after finding her wonderful work online. Very quickly they developed a creative rapport and the Moldavite Collection was begun. There are 3 groups in the Moldavite Collection, The Raw Earth Collection, which incorporates raw pieces with precious and semi precious stones, The Facet Collection which uses exclusively facetted moldavite and precious and semi precious stones, and The Besednice Collection which combines this rare and exquisitely delicate type of moldavite in with precious and semi precious stones. All pieces in The Moldavite Collection are set in 9ct or 18ct gold. They are unique and highly collectable as well as being fabulous pieces of wearable art. All pieces in this range carry Claire Acworth's maker’s mark and appropriate hallmark. Please visit again to see more pieces for sale as they are listed.
