Claireabellemakes is creative lifestyle brand originating from the Cambridge based home studio of Claire Wilson. The designs focus on bringing a little more colour and positivity (and sometimes glitter!) into your life and to those around you. You’ll find greetings cards, accessories and gifts in the shop to do just that.
The brand began back in 2012 as a creative outlet for Claire following her graduate studies in Arts Management and Marketing. Claireabellemakes has since evolved to include the shop and a creative blog which strives to be a source of positivity in the handmade industry.
Hi there! I’m Claire and I am the one woman band behind all that happens here at Claireabellemakes. I’m obsessive about creativity and can’t survive without my planner and a good pen. One of my huge passions is sharing my life here in Cambridge (UK) and exploring on my trusty bicycle Florence.
After being selected as one of the world’s first Etsy Educators in October 2017, I developed workshops to mentor new sellers and to guide them into life as a creative business owner online. Over the last 6 years, I have also worked as a freelance stylist, DIY contributor and craft party instructor. You can find my press features here, and publication and styling portfolios here.
The Claireabellemakes blog began as a creative journal to share craft projects and creative living. It has since evolved to share DIYs, stationery, lifestyle and interior posts, as well as candid articles of life as a small business owner.
Brand work for the blog and YouTube channel includes the following partners; Disney, Kirstie Allsopp’s Handmade Fair, Pinterest, John Lewis, Wicked The Musical, FiloFax and Laura Ashley.
