Business started: 2016
About my business: I started my business by making jewellery using a variety of beads before discovering I could make my own beads with polymer clay. Being a Mum of two growing kids, I realised I also wanted to create something for me I’ve been a crafter/hobbyist since a child and being able to share my jewellery and teach others continues to be a privilege.
What do I sell: Online polymer clay projects, offline polymer clay workshops, handcrafted custom polymer clay jewellery, polymer clay kits
Special products for adults: Polymer clay project kits that include supplies and tutorial video. Projects include jewellery, candle holders, and trinket bowls.
Kids products: Polymer clay project kits with a theme. Currently, offering a rainbow theme where kids can create three different projects. Includes supplies and tutorial videos.
Geography: Based in UK
COVID-19: Before the current situation, I delivered in person workshops and had started doing some online. I’m currently focussing on offering online projects to kids and adults. While kids are at home, they can explore and express their creativity using polymer clay. Adults as well need some time to relax and crafting is the perfect outlet.
