Lizzi Holt's Profile

About

My name is Lizzi and I’ve been crafting since I was knee high to a grasshopper. You know the type: the one who would prefer to play with the wrapping paper and packaging, rather than the contents and be cutting, drawing and glueing before you could say ‘boo’ to a goose! To my family, I’m known as Zizzi, ever since my younger brother tried to learn how to say my name.

My Polymer Clay...

Who doesn’t love playing with play-dough, or for those who are old enough to remember, plasticine?! Well, polymer clay is just like that, but can be baked in a conventional oven to harden it.

It’s not really clay, but a man-made polymer (plastic). The resulting items are very durable and waterproof and it can be made into just about anything, and can often resemble other materials, like glass & ceramic.

But, I have to focus, so I’ve chosen buttons, beads, brooches and pendants as my main stock items. From time to time, I will branch out and create something new, post tutorials and try a new craft, so watch this space!

I also run workshops on PC techniques from making basic ‘canes’ (like making a stick of rock with a design all the way through), to more advanced techniques, like ‘mokume gane’ and ‘mica shift’ designs and how to apply them to make your own beads or add them to other oven-safe items, like candle holders or cutlery.

I hope you enjoy browsing my shop. If there is anything you would like to see, or you would like a custom made design, I'd be more than happy to help - just get in touch.
