Clara Jackson studied jewellery design and silversmithing at Birmingham School of Jewellery. After finishing her studies, she worked for a fair-trade jewellery company called Just Trade in London and completed a small project in Vietnam on their behalf. In 2016, she travelled to India and was introduced to the charity Calcutta Rescue. Clara instantly felt a connection with the artisans and changed her travel plans from an initially planned 5 weeks to almost 5 months! She spent this time designing, sourcing, making and teaching the charity to come up with some initial products, using re-purposed bicycle tube and saris. She tried and tested the products in the UK, then returned to India in 2017 to make a new collection and expand the product range.
