Fiona Herbst is a jewellery designer/maker who works almost exclusively with polymer-clay. Polymer-clay is a man made clay baked in a conventional oven which offers the maker an abundance of colours and variability. She uses fine art and original design taking a minimalist approach that plays with colour, texture, structure and design.
Fiona lives in Co Donegal where the landscape is strong and formidable. The weather too can be unforgiving, and this is reflected in her work.
She creates mainly earrings, pendants and beaded necklaces. The result is edgy unique one-off pieces of jewellery that Fiona believes reflect what she calls wearable art, the finishing touch to any wardrobe and a wonderful addition to any contemporary jewellery collection.
