About

A Fairy Tale in Clay

I've been working with clay since I was a small girl. I remember the first time I really got to experience the medium. I was nine and visiting a friend who had a really large collection of polymer clays. I was instantly enchanted. I was always building sculptures out of everything I could, play dough, legos, my parents book collection. But there was something magical about making something, baking something and then having it to keep. I started with miniatures and worked my way up to figurines and dolls. I even included some of those in my portfolio for my Art School application to Carnegie Mellon University.

While in undergrad I was introduced to other sculpture methods, welding, ceramics and small metals to name a few. And while I really enjoyed making things on a grand scale, I always came back to making items that could fit in your hand. I still love the precision and vibrancy you can get with polymer clays.

This shop is a combination of that love and my enjoyment of stories, fairy tales and Disney. For the most part, when looking for inspiration, I like to stick with fairy tales that are in the public domain, like Cinderella, Snow White, The Little Mermaid, Rapunzel and the like. And while some of my pieces do have a distinctive Disney Feel to them, they are all inspired by the tales as a whole, because Disney is part of that now. In many cases the Disney version of these old tales are the versions we know best. We grew up with them, they became a part of our culture. But I try to balance that out with pieces based on other versions of the tales as well.

Some of my items have a beachy feel to them. The shells that I use in my shop were all picked up by my family over years of traveling to Florida's Gulf coast. Each pair of earrings, each bracelet charm or necklace pendant I make that uses those shells has been hand matched, hand picked and hand drilled to bring a bit of my love of the sea to all of you.

But I have to say that none of this would be possible at all without my younger sister. She is my cheerleader, my business partner, and the person I have to thank for getting me crafting again and for getting me on Etsy. So from us to you, we hope you find something that inspires you, or even just makes you smile. This is k8ilyEverAfter.
