With more than eighteen years of experience in the jewellery industry, Claudi takes an innovative approach to creating personal and unique jewellery with a twist. She likes to produce pieces with meaning, reflecting the wearer’s personality, whilst also adding her own original and playful elements to the design.

Her coloured gemstones are from ethically responsible sources.
