From Clothing to Clay: a Fashion Design Student's Start-up.

The end of my second academic year at university, combined with the first COVID-19 lockdown in the UK, presented both a challenge and an opportunity. With national restrictions firmly in place, finding a hands-on creative outlet to develop my design skills would have been quite difficult. Yet, as often happens, enforced spare time and the internet came together in sufficient quantities to inspire me to start my own business alongside simply finding that creative outlet. This is where Pinterest - the start of all good ideas! - comes in. After some dedicated pinning, inspiration took hold and I decided to experiment with polyclay and accessory design; I thought to myself, I can do this!

Officially established in late June 2020, Alice Lizzy Accessories has blossomed quite rapidly into an exciting and vibrant small business. Now taking orders on a daily basis (something which I never thought would be possible so early in the journey!), I hand-make hundreds of pairs of earrings each month; rolling, cutting, and baking the clay, sanding each individual earring (now with a rotary tool!), and packaging and posting each and every order, all while studying fashion design full-time at university. I pride myself on my fair pricing, quality craftsmanship, the originality of my designs, and the professionalism of my photography and marketing - and all of this while living and working in a one-room studio apartment! While my intention has always been to join a fashion brand's design team after university, with polyclay becoming ever more popular as an accessory material, who knows what the future holds!
