We caught up with the super talented Clare Dutton to chat about her handmade jewellery and accessories range Dolly Cool.
EYC: What is Dolly Cool all about?
Clare: Dolly Cool is inspired by my love of Rockabilly, Tattoos and the 50's and was created as I wanted to make affordable yet cool jewellery and accessories for people like myself.
EYC: We love that your jewels and accessories have an the edge on others working in the same field as yourself, tell us about it.
Clare: I hand make and finish each and every one of my products personally. Everything on the Dolly Cool website is unique and original, is not mass produced and is made with care by me.
Unlike a lot of other companies selling this type of product, I don't 'buy in' things to sell on, I make it all myself. I like to think that this is my Unique Selling Point in a very heavily saturated market.
EYC: So, not only do you make amazing one of a kind jewellery but you have your fingers in other pies too!?
Clare: As well as jewellery, I also own a professional embroidery machine, for which I design and make the embroideries myself. This has progressed to a small clothing line, which I sell exclusively at shows at present, and some pieces on ebay."
Dolly Cool can be found at various art and craft events boutiques and online stores, so there's no excuse not to grab yourself some gifts for Christmas. One for your friend, two for yourself!
