I first came across Australian Clare Davidson's wonderful gothic and medieval inspired sterling silver jewelry when I featured one of her designs for my previous medieval cathedral architecture inspired jewelry post

Her collection on Skadi Jewellery does not disappoint. Beautifully designed and made, the medieval elements such as castles and rose windows which spark her imaginative work, are evident.

Clare said :

I’m extremely fortunate to have a family that have always encouraged me to do what I love so that I love what I do and never really work a day in my life. For me becoming a jewellery designer was a natural progression. I feel naked if I leave the house without at least 7 out of 10 fingers covered in rings and I can’t sit still for more than 5 minutes without creating something with my hands.

She is a professionally trained jewelry designer.   She, like me, loves history. She explains :

I’ve always been inspired by ornately beautiful things and the smaller details. I read at every opportunity and I’m fascinated by history. Mainly I’m just a fool for a compelling story. All these things manifest themselves in every piece I make.
