Claire also helped her friend Jane win the DeBeers Diamonds International award in 1990. Her friend was designing a brooch in the form of a mountain then Claire “turned the sketch on its side, drew on some ears and it became a dog barking. From there it was but a short journey to its final form as a speckled trout head,” Jane says.
Through ELLE, Vessot’s magnificent eye for style and design is brought to masses. The ELLE line is an affordable way to accentuate a woman’s personal sense of style through earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings. The line used sterling silver as its muse and infuses colorful semi-precious stones and gemstones. The designs boast sleek, modern lines and hints of geometry. Each piece of jewelry is embellished with a small ruby logo, which the designer says is symbolic of a woman’s strength and beauty.
