During a year-long sabbatical with her husband, Clare discovered that she craved the ability to create and build her own vision. After making jewelry as a hobby for many years, she decided to pursue it full time and enrolled in WEV’s Self-Employment Training program to help her develop the framework for her business. A few months after completing the course, she received a startup loan from WEV and in November 2011, Kings & Priests was born. The business has developed from custom jewelry design into an interior design and styling studio. Her work has been featured in Oprah Magazine, 805 Living Magazine, and Santa Barbara Magazine.
