About

Hello, I'm Laura....

I first started making soap over seven years ago with my mom to help her recovery from a stroke. I was immediately hooked and enjoyed soap making as a hobby for years, exploring all the wonderful natural ingredients and designs I could combine together to make these beautiful things I could hold in my hands and proudly gift to my friends and family. I am inspired by colors from nature and everyday things, like the crazy retro floral sheets I hung as curtains in my "soap cave" or Juniper the cat's favorite nap-time spots, and also from scents that remind me of home and the people I love.

When I decided that I was able to leave my crazy schedule full time job behind, I knew that I wanted to turn this thing that I love into a thing that I do, for real. I stocked my Etsy shop in the fall of 2013 and chose the name Silk & Clay for two of my favorite ingredients that were special to me and that are included in every batch of soap I make. I also participate in a number of local farmers markets and craft show events where I have made so many fantastic friends.

When I'm not soaping, you'll find me avoiding laundry, nerding out on sci-fi/fantasy books and video games, wishing I was a real gardener, listening to the same Water Liars album on repeat all day while I bounce around my very own soap cave, and struggling to organize around a remodel.

I am very active as the president of our local Etsy team EtsyNooga organizing team meetings, events and craft shows, teaching craft and Etsy classes, and volunteering with a recurring Etsy teen camp all in collaboration with the Chattanooga Public Library. I was recently fortunate enough to be chosen by Etsy to teach a local class that helps students from low income and underserved community backgrounds learn to turn their handmade craft into a successful online business. (You can learn more about the Etsy Craft Entrepreneurship Program here: http://craftentrepreneurship.com/ )

Thank you for stopping by my shop, and wanting to read about little old me. I hope you enjoy your visit!

Customer pays return shipping unless otherwise agreed upon.

I will deduct a 20% RESTOCKING FEE ON ANY SOAP FAVOR CUSTOM ORDER REFUNDS.

Contact me ASAP to arrange a return and refund or work out a solution.
Additional policies and FAQs
***To get the longest life from your soap, store it away from sunlight and heat, and allow to dry between uses.

***All of my handmade soaps are cured for a minimum of four to six weeks, during which time they lose moisture to make a hard, long-lasting bar of soap. I will not send you a bar of freshly made, soft soap that will melt away quickly in the shower.

***Please check all ingredients in the materials section for possible allergies.


Due to the nature of my handmade soap process and the long cure time required, please note than I cannot fulfill requests for custom batches of soap in less than 4-6 weeks time. If you are requesting a specific scent or ingredients in a batch of soap made just for you that is not already available in my shop, I'd ask that you please purchase no fewer than FIVE bars of that soap.
