Born in Durban, South Africa in 1969, Helen Clara Hemsley now lives in Denmark's beautiful Copenhagen. Helen received her BA (Hons) Fine Art Sculpture from Glasgow School of Art in Scotland in 1998 and further progressed her jewellery making skills at the Institute of Precious Metals in Copenhagen in 2010.
Helen draws her inspiration from the everyday, the familiar and the collision of culture and form. Her jewellery is often crafted in mundane materials and tells stories that aim to bring a smile to the wearers' faces and get them to thinking about the world around them. Helen's creations are about passion and curiosity, mirroring the designer's desire for answers to endless questions.
Helen Clara Hemsley's art jewellery has been exhibited globally in cities such as Copenhagen, Paris, Germany, Istanbul, Paris, Glasgow, Seoul and many more.
