Biography of Claire Lamberth

Claire was born in Philadelphia and raised in Elkins Park where she attended public school. Her mother was a painter and took Claire and her sister to the Philadelphia Art Museum for classes for many years, encouraging their talent.

Claire went to Barnard College in New York, and majored in Art History. Following graduation, she went to Europe where she married and lived in Frankfurt, Paris, Zagreb and Sarajevo. After living in Milan, Italy for 8 years, she returned with her two sons to the US and decided to study nursing. She chose a career in psychiatric nursing and worked for 13 years in Philadelphia and Wilmington, DE.

Following her retirement in 2001, Claire took classes in stained glass and in 2004 she had the opportunity to take an 8 week course in glass fusing. Having started to make jewelry the previous year, she was fascinated by the colors of dichroic glass, and the possibilities offered by fusing it.

Since then, Claire has continued to create beautiful jewelry using gemstones, pearls and silver, but has devoted herself to fusing dichroic glass in an ongoing search for new design ideas.

Claire sells her jewelry at juried artisan craft shows, as well as at the Delaware Art Museum gift shop, the Center for Creative Arts in Yorklyn, DE and the Newark Arts Alliance. She is a member of Delaware by Hand and a juried member of the Chester County Craft Guild.
