About

I started Quernus Crafts in 2009 after choosing to leave a 15 year career in law to pursue my life-long passion for arts and crafts. You can find out more about my journey in my interview for the Quit Your Day Job! series on the Etsy blog (http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2012/quit-your-day-job-quernus-crafts/).

I love working with the wonderful medium of polymer clay which is so flexible and has allowed me to come up with a fantastic range of cute and quirky wee animals. I particularly enjoy doing commissions and am happy to accept any challenge - to find out more, and to see the full range of wee creatures I have made, visit my website at http://www.quernuscrafts.co.uk/. I am also on Flickr here - http://www.flickr.com/photos/quernuscrafts/sets/.

The word "quernus" means of oaks, or oaken. Oak trees hold a special significance for me, which is why I wanted them to play an integral part in the identity of my new career. There is something magical about each small acorn holding the potential to become a magnificent oak tree with all its natural intelligence and beauty. I firmly believe that everyone has this potential within them, and part of my ongoing mission is to give others like me the chance to follow their heart and allow that acorn to become the mighty oak it longs to be.
