Clara Francis and I first spoke about doing an interview when she had just given birth to her youngest and I was pregnant with Snarfle... but somehow life as a new mum got in the way and it's only now, two years later, that I have finally been able to catch up with this super talented jewellery designer. Clara is self taught in the virtually lost art of beading, producing beautifully intricate but bold pieces that seem to take on a life of their own. Here she talks candidly about the swap from acting to making, how motherhood has changed her life, and her excitement about the production of a new bridal collection. She's a total inspiration.
