The stack of books is about the size of my fingernail, maybe even a little smaller, but they're perfect, not too big nor too heavy. It adds a little happiness to my day every time I wear them. :)

I love this little pin badge - and it is little. As an avid reader and a writer it sums up the stack of books I've always got on the go. It's very well made and so colourful. Arrived in super-quick time and I love wearing it. Judging from the comments I keep getting other people love it too. I keep trying to encourage them to buy one ...

A Choreographer of Clay

I always molded things as a child - whether it was homemade playdoh my parents made me and my brother, or clay from the mud bank near our house (I remember drying tiny mice figurines on the woodstove!), a malleable starburst candy (before eating - tastes better as a cat shape!), or simple plasticine made into television characters. I guess moving on to polymer clay makes sense in hindsight!

And I've always needed that creative outlet. In Spring 2011 I opened my shop on Etsy. A colleague in my office had one, and I thought, "I could do that!". I went out to Hobbycraft and bought £20 worth of polymer clay and set to it.

In December 2011 my contract at work ended. I took it as an opportunity - I could look for another job, or I could see how far I could take my crafting. I gave myself three months, then another three... the ride has been too fun to stop! Now I don't know if I could ever return to the office!

I've now gone back to university to do a PhD in archaeology (my other interest!). Etsy helps me afford the tuition and gives me the flexibility to work around my studies. I love making my jewellery and I have so many more designs up my sleeve - I look forward to making them for many years more!

    I'm a Canadian expat who moved to the UK to study archaeology - and ended up finding a husband! I've always needed a creative outlet; being able to share my craft on Etsy makes me feel so happy.
