As a young boy, Scott spent some time wandering and fossicking along the beaches of Cape Barren Island. It was here that he found pieces of amethyst and began his fascination with precious and semi-precious gemstones. Following the path that only those who want to lead interesting lives will choose, Scott has attained a trade in welding, a degree in design and education, and followed on with gemmology and diamond grading. He is also a qualified valuer. Scott now passionately resides in the business of creating beautiful jewellery. With a strong knowledge of diamonds and coloured stones, he is the grand poo-bah of the team with a down to earth approach.
With a bit of a penchant for all things luxury, combined with a passion to deliver high-end fine jewellery to the beautiful people of Hobart, this is the girl that tries to glue the two together. A bizarre dichotomy of loving the wild, empty open spaces of Tasmania but also needing to get off the rock to see how the other half live means that Freya has her head stuffed full of ideas about what the progressive Hobart people should have in their jewellery boxes. She is passionate about creating a premium shopping experience where everyone who enters the store will be made to feel special.
Fiona lives and breathes jewellery and jewellery design. We are convinced that this girl might have a little bit of sparkle running through her veins as her family lived and worked in the mining district of NSW. But if you think she grew up getting her hands dirty down a mine shaft, think again. Fiona resided in Sydney for most of her life where she designed and created jewellery for sophisticated Sydney circles. Her time at Cerrone Jewellers, Hardy Bros amounted to 24 years making her one of the most experienced designers in the trade. If you want to have something truly special commissioned then this lady is the best of the best.
Jewellery holds special memories and wonderful stories. No one appreciates the sentimental significance of jewellery more than Kate. Throughout her career, she has surrounded herself with precious objects from the past, and works with meticulous care and detail to preserve and care for your valuable objects. As a gemologist, she is able to help discover the hidden stories in your jewellery and can assist you in selecting something special for someone so that stories can continue. Kate’s nimble fingers are often disposed towards threading treasured pearls and other beautiful objects – a skill that is rare but valuable to those of us who cherish heirlooms and things of beauty.
Adriana is our Romanian storyteller with a quest to make people happy. Her love of languages, cooking and gardening thread through the many adventures she has experienced throughout her extraordinary life. Always ready for a challenge, Adriana brings with her a chronicle of ideas and stories that draw on her design skills and her ability to understand how to transform a customer’s desires into reality. With her long history in the design industry, it has been a natural passage into luxury jewellery and she has now found her new home at Claudia Jewellers. With sketchbook and pen poised, Adriana makes the perfect accompaniment to a talented team.
Our gentle jeweller Steve…What a privilege it is to have such an artisan of skill and experience working with us at Claudia Jewellers. We were lucky enough to have coaxed our talented Kiwi across the Tasman and into the heart of the Claudia Jewellers workshop. In doing so he has also managed to find a place into our hearts as we watch with awe his mastery at the workbench and listen to his vast knowledge about the construction and creation of jewellery. Most of all, he cares for each article that comes across his workbench. Steve is happiest when hand-making jewellery and welcomes you to come upstairs and see how your special creation is progressing. If you’re lucky, you might find yourself sampling one of his other amazing creations – sweet pastries! Life is sweet indeed at Claudia Jewellers.
