Claire Watson, the artist behind BlueKittyCreations is American by birth, and Scandinavian by heart. Born into a military family, she has experienced a plethora of homes and cultures. She loves living in Scotland with the dramatic landscapes and the even more dramatic accents, and with the close historical ties between Scotland and Scandinavia she never feels too far from home.
Claire has always been a creative person. Always having a sketchbook close to hand throughout childhood, was just one way of expressing that creativity. As she grew older and expierienced more cultures, She expanded her skills and tried new crafts and techniques inspired by the people and the history of the land she was surrounded by.
Her passion for jewellery was first sparked when she attended a medieval workshop. Run by a Viking no less!
He demonstrated an old viking technique used for making chain necklaces. Refered to as Viking Knit, or Trichinopoly, she loved weaving together wire and started thinking of new ideas and new colours to bring it into the modern day world. She continues to teach herself new techniques, for her paintings and silversmithing.
