Designer – maker Claire Roche trained as a sculptor at Gray’s school of art in Aberdeen. She now lives and works in North Ayrshire, producing small wearable sculpture in the form of beautiful silver jewellery.
Forms and textures are organic and undulating, often very tactile. The inspiration for each piece is as individual as the piece itself; it can be the local landscape, plants from her garden or a stone picked up at a nearby beach that determines the shape of its own setting. Roche Designs has been trading since 2003, slowly growing from the odd commission for friends into a small business.
All pieces are hand-crafted, most are completely unique but a few of the simpler pieces are limited editions of no more than 10 (see product descriptions). Everything comes boxed in our trademark boxes are hallmarked by the Edinburgh Assay Office.
