Instructor: Claire Sommers Buck

As a metalsmith and jewelry designer, I am intent on creating timeless, comfortable and well made jewelry fit for everyday wear. My appreciation and passion for quality, handcrafted goods began at a very early age in my parents' dusty, wood floored pottery studio. It was from this creative, honest and hardworking foundation, that I gained the confidence and enthusiasm to eventually pursue a path in metalsmithing. 

After earning a degree in International Studies and traveling through South America, I took my first jewelry fabrication class at Penland School of Crafts in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. It was love at first "saw". From that moment on, I dedicated myself to exploring the craft on my own and Claire Sommers Buck Jewelry was born.
