Fouché jewellery is designed by Claire Fouché, an artist and jeweller with a deep interest in African culture, craftsmanship & rare gemstones. Claire takes inspiration from the Italian art déco architecture of Asmara on the Horn of Africa and interprets into modern, sculptured cuffs and bold earrings amongst her jewellery designs. Fouché jewellery is hand carved by artisans in Nairobi using locally sourced materials such as Ankole cow horn and wood that is intricately finished by hand in small workshops based in England. Claire is half South African and grew up travelling around Africa with her parents. The 'Diana' Cuff is named after her late mother and takes inspiration from the warrior cuffs worn by style icon Diana Vreeland and Nancy Cunard. Claire is a former couture jeweller for Fabergé where she trained as a designer and gemologist. Fouché jewellery provides ongoing fair-trade employment to skilled artisans in Nairobi and Kibera, Africa's largest slum. In 2012 Claire co-founded the Maisha Foundation to support young talent from Kibera in skills training programmes. Fouché jewellery is coveted by inspirational women around the world, including Sienna Miller and Lucinda Chambers, and has featured in British, French & Brazilian Vogue.
