Edinburgh-based clā contemporary makes not all, but mostly ceramic jewelery.  Each piece is hand-crafted by artist Chelsea Adams.  Themes follow simple lines and textures, with subtle colour choices.  She has two Etsy stores, the main clā contemporary shop, plus clā stock, where you can pick up a taste of her style for under £15.  You can also follow her on her blog, where, among other things, I just saw a couple of delicious-looking recipes!
