Claudia’s Story

The Claudia Bradby story

Claudia discovered her passion for pearls while living in Hong Kong. Drawn to the bustling gemstone markets, she was fascinated by the diverse array of pearls and became convinced that this precious stone had more to offer than traditional pearl jewellery.

Claudia began by creating simple jewellery for friends, stringing pearls onto knotted leather. As her enthusiasm and the popularity of the pieces grew, these evolved into a complete collection of contemporary, wearable pearl jewellery. Claudia’s inspiration remains the same as when she started designing jewellery in the late 1990’s; to create stylish, affordable pearl jewellery that can be worn by every woman, every day.

Inspiration

When living in Hong Kong, Claudia found her initial inspirations in this city, from the streets to exploring the pearl and gem markets.

First Iconic Design

Claudia's first iconic design, The World Is Your Oyster became a hit and her designs were soon to be found in Liberty London.

Pearl Revolution

Claudia will be forever grateful to Hong Kong for starting a passion in this beautiful gem stone and kickstarting her own pearl revolution.

Potential

Claudia found fascination in pearls, their origin and story and saw potential in this beautiful gemstone beyond just the strings of pearls.

The Concept

Claudia set about designing a collection that would work for all occasions, with all wardrobes in an accessible and affordable way.

Design Inspiration

Claudia is inspired by story telling and natural shapes, creating simple pieces for the women of today, for all occasions and moods.
