Samantha Cluett is an artist/designer and craftsperson based in Conwy, who has been making and selling under the name 'Finspired' since 2011. Initially training and qualifying as a traditional sheet metal worker, she then went on to study Design Technology at University of Wales Bangor and now works on her contemporary jewellery and recycled textiles from her studio in Tal y Cafn.
’I take inspiration for my jewellery from the shapes I find exploring the rolling hills of North Wales, and the intertwined swirls and twists in hedgerows’.
Samantha crafts her jewellery designs from a variety of materials, including Sterling Silver and recycled Sheffield Plate, often adding semi-precious gemstones or reclaimed glass beads.
Her textile work is led entirely by the materials available, as she recycles a wealth of unwanted, damaged and sometimes ragged garments into colourful scarves, gloves, and wraps.
