My Jewellery is about celebrating Life.
It is pure Joy.

Designer Jeweller Claudia Westhaus produces distinctive and individual items of jewellery in gold, silver and platinum

... of course also with diamonds, precious gemstones and pearls. You are welcome to visit her studio or browse through a selection of her beautiful new collection here and now.


Welcome to my Garden

Claudia is dedicated to work with almost paper thin sheets of metall. Minute and delicate multiple elements are combined to unique creations of seductive charme, including brooches, rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets or bangles.
You may choose from her wide variety of exciting designs or commssion a unique piece of jewellery, meticulously handcrafted and finished.


The abundancy of nature is what inspires Claudia most. Delicate veins of leaves, the fascinating structure of plants or even a rainy walk at night might stimulate her design process. It is often the unexpected which arouses her attention and generates solely unique and unmistakable creations.



Claudia‘s jewellery is full of joy, light and of a surprising ease. For her jewellery is about celebrating life, which is reflected in her almost playful, elegant and delicate designs. Her jewellery still maintains an aura of the unexpected as she plays with scale, movement or details of natural forms, all beautifully handcrafted. For her the work process is almost like meditation and most satisfying when a piece is finally completed in the eye of the observer.
