Tania Clarke Hall is an award-winning jeweller working in leather.

She delights in moulding, slashing, scorching and colouring leather using experimental and innovative techniques that continually push the boundaries of her medium. The result is elegant yet playful jewellery that has a bold and colourful twist.  Tactile, warm, malleable and beautifully lightweight, her jewellery is a pleasure to wear.

Describe your work in 3 words?
Bold, dramatic, playful

If you weren’t a jewellery designer what do you think you would be?
I think I would be an oceanographer. I am fascinated by the sea and studying its physical attributes would be fascinating challenge.

If you could own a piece by another maker in any discipline, no price limit, what would it be?
It would undoubtedly be a piece by Calder – the simplicity, honesty and energy of his jewellery pieces are amazing.
