The Belclaire Archive is a one-woman, small-batch chainworks and jewelry atelier owned and managed by artist Sarah Belclaire, the great-grandaughter of a southern Italian goldsmith. We specialize in long-lasting, quality materials and chic, luxe designs manifested through a melding of haute couture and "counter-couture."
We were founded in 2022 and are based in Maine, USA.
We do not take custom orders at this time.
Please send questions to email@example.com.
In 2023, we founded our "Limited" collection, which features reclaimed antiques on premium chains, reimagined for today. This line features only sterling silver, stainless steel, gold vermeil, gold fill, and solid gold (tested & guaranteed). As an Oxford-educated design historian, Sarah takes great pride in sourcing antique pieces for this flagship line, mostly from jewelers in the United Kingdom. The Limited Collection takes genuine Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco, and midcentury charms and pendants and reintegrates them into edgy contemporary designs.
The Atelier collection is our demi-fine line of handmade, one-of-a-kind accessories. Using a range of materials, from ceramic to brass to textiles, our founder Sarah Belclaire hand-makes these pieces, one-at-a-time at her workbench. Her designs are inspired by a modern take on European design trends of the past 200 years.
