About

Dreams, stories, colours and texture, that's what my world is made of.

Hi, my name is Deidre and I welcome you to my little dream world!
I am a polymer clay and needle felt artist, and my original work comes both in the form of clay paintings, needle felted pictures and wearable art jewelry.

I started my shop at the end of 2011. Back then I was making polymer clay jewelry and addicted to crocheting and combining my polymer clay jewels with my crochet jewelry.
Over time, my polymer clay work developed into much more intricate designs, from which my story art pieces were born, starting with small little witch pendants, then bigger mermaid and fairy pendants and by now I'm sculpting paintings, illustrations of little story scenes in my mind, really.
During this time I also developed a love for needle felting, hand dyed and handspun art yarns and silk yarns as well. I fell in love with the texture, the deep vivid colours and the unpredictable-ness of fiber.

* I have another shop where I sell my Fiber Art in the form of art, jewelry and accessories here on Etsy, which can be found here: www.etsy.com/shop/DeidreDreamsFiber
And a hand painted patina jewelry shop as well: www.etsy.com/shop/PatinaRainbow

With the help of photography I also offer depictions of my original clay and felt work as illustrations in other forms such as art prints, greeting cards, tote bags, throw pillowcases and coffee mugs.

I'm a dreamer and I love the idea of not knowing where my art will take me and the idea that the possibilities are endless.
Next to my work, my greatest passion is traveling. My favorite destinations are Ireland and Scotland by far. I love how the land there has so many different shades of green, and how the sea and lochs and rivers have so many different shades of blue.
The history and myths are so tangible there and the winds feel like they carry magic. Every time I leave, I can't wait to go back. And every time I come home inspired.

I stumbled upon polymer clay by accident. A girl at work brought some with her and I was excited right away. I bought a stash that same day and haven't gone without a piece of clay in my hands ever since that day. I love how versatile and colourful it is and I love the feel of it in my hands.
After a little while I re-discovered crochet through my mum and grandma. The concept of making jewelry and pretty accessories with yarn and embellishing them with my clay jewel creations came naturally after that. (See my other shop for my fiber jewelry and other wearable items that combine with my clay jewel pieces)
I love working with hand dyed and hand spun yarns, because the texture is so wonderful and the colours so vibrant. It also means I know where my material is coming from and that I get to support another artist and that my work is much more eco friendly.
This lead to my discovering needle felting and the awesome colours and textures that needle felting with yarns and other fiber materials brings to a felted piece.

    I love colour above everything. It always inspires me. Other than that, I love my two crazy cats, my dude, great stories, traveling, beautiful photographs, illustrations and music. And I love making art that puts a smile on someone's face.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Although I love the water and taking baths, my goodies not so much, they can handle a little spatter, but other than that, they don't like bathing.
They also don't like to be bounced on the floor.
While polymer clay is strong, it is not unbreakable. Do not put too much pressure on clay parts of items, they are not of the same sturdiness as metal. Take special care with protruding and small bits of clay in the pieces. When for instance, you are putting in earrings, do not press down on the clay parts of the jewelry. And don't wear tight, rubbing jackets over brooches and pendants.
This is why my pieces are not meant for children. Please remember that, should you wish to purchase something for a child anyway.

Custom and personalized orders

For custom orders I have to ask full payment up front.
Please note that all pieces are created by hand, so no two items are identical, which makes each piece unique.
If you should want to have an item custom made for you, this is of course, possible, but I cannot take returns for custom made items.
Please make sure you like the item before I send it to you, no matter how many convo's and photo's it might take.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I ship in envelopes or small boxes that fit in the mail slot to keep shipping costs down, since parcel post is so much more expensive in the Netherlands than letter post.
Wherever possible I recycle packaging to spare the environment and keep costs down.

Sizing details

Please read the description in each listing carefully, size information is always in there.

Returns

I want to give the best possible customer service, so if an item shouldn't be to your liking on arrival, please let me know within 2 weeks of receiving the item, via convo.
Items can be returned and you will be reimbursed for them, except for the shipping cost it took to get the item to you and back to me.
Refund will be given once the item arrives safely back with me.
All items must be returned in the same condition as they arrived.
I cannot take returns for custom made items.
If you have any questions on ready to ship items, before you want to purchase, please do convo me.
