Crafting with Moxie

I first began sculpting with polymer clay in Summer 2012, when making a Ursula inspired seashell necklace for myself (and a large clay starfish hair clip for my friend). I was pleasantly surprised with the end result, and I was curious if other people might like enjoy it as well. The first one listed quickly sold, with custom requests from others for more! I was astonished. This moment kick started a new direction for my Etsy shop with a simple philosophy: Make what I love, love what I make. I feel it shows in the work when an artist loves what they're doing, and ultimately do their best work.

While I love the nearly endless possibilities that sculpting in polymer clay allows, I always enjoy experimenting with new materials.

I love making things for people, and I have been very happy sending off my creations within the Etsy community. The feedback has been wonderful, and I love when I get to see photos of completed costumes using something I made. I feel lucky to have had some of the sweetest, most creative customers ever.
Thank you Etsy! :)
