In 1963 he became the apprentice to the quintessential American jeweler David Webb and after working a variety of sales positions within the company, Clunn became an indispensable assistant to Webb and worked with premier clients like the Duchess of Windsor and Elizabeth Taylor, until Webb's death in 1975.
In 1980 Clunn opened his own studio in New York City and he specialised in distinctive jewellery designs for distinguished European and North American families. Clunn died in February 2016 in Rye, New York.
