About Me...

Hello and welcome!

I'm Maive. I'm an artist and author of "Miniature Cake Creations" living in the Southeast of England with my boyfriend and a bunny called Benjamin.

My journey as a polymer clay artist began in 2011, when my mother in law handed me my first blocks of FIMO. At the time I was getting into baking and so it was almost inevitable for me to want to make miniature cakes and cake-themed jewellery out of clay.

I also make super cute and tiny air dry clay houses and shops inspired by the 3 countries I've lived in, my travels and places I'd like to visit. For some time now I had been looking for a more natural medium that allowed me more freedom to create and I've found it!

I hope you'll find something you'll connect with in my little shop,

Thanks for stopping by,

Maive

HANDMADE WITH LOVE

All my pieces are individually sculpted by myself from polymer clay or air dry clay, so they truly are unique. I only use moulds made of my original pieces.
I dedicate a lot of time and care to my pieces, so if there is one little thing I don't like about a piece, I recycle it and start over.
So you can be certain you will always have 100% of me.

I'm a one woman band. I am the designer, sculptor, photographer, writer and short little human that packs and takes her babies to the post office once they've found a new home.

It's always a bittersweet experience, to part. But I know you will love them just as much as I loved making them.

I hope you will find something that connects with you,

Thank you so much for stopping by,

Have a lovely day,

Maive

POSTING DAY:

To protect my customers, my family and myself and to minimise the risk of a Covid-19 infection I am limiting my trips to the post office to ONCE A WEEK.

My posting day is FRIDAY.

*No exceptions, so please keep this in mind when ordering for a specific date.
*Made to order items ordered too close to Friday will be shipped the following week.

----------------------

Processing times may vary from item to item and will be specified in the item's description.


Please note P&P charges include packaging costs, posting costs and my time and petrol to get to the nearest post office.

-----------------------

UK Delivery
All items are shipped via Royal Mail 1st Class.
Estimated Delivery: 1 Working Day.

------------------------
International Delivery
International deliveries are posted using the Royal Mail Tracked services.

As of 6/02/2019 I only offer Tracked (or Tracked & Signed depending on the country) shipping for the European Union and Rest of the World as many parcels go missing or tend to take a long time to arrive when using standard economy delivery services.

My pieces are very important to me to send them out into the world without knowing if they'll make it to destination and I care about my customers getting what they ordered and in a timely manner. This way, they'll not only get to you safe and sound, but in a fraction of the time.

You will be able to track your parcel by entering the tracking number provided with the shipping confirmation on the Royal Mail Website: https://www.royalmail.com/track-your-item#/ and know exactly where it is every step of the way.

Delivery times vary depending on the country of destination, but it shouldn't take longer than 2 weeks.

Please track your parcel's journey to see the estimated delivery date as it gets closer to destination and ensure someone's in to receive it and avoid it being sent back.

The buyer is responsible for customs taxes.
I am not responsible for any delays due to customs.​

---------------------------

DELIVERY DELAYS
Please note that more restrictions have been implemented due to COVID-19 and therefore more delays are being experienced in the US and Australia due to customs checking more incoming parcels.

CUSTOM ORDERS INFORMATION

I don't take custom orders.
------------------------------------

GIFT WRAPPING & PACKAGING

In order to save resources and to keep my business as green as possible, my pieces are carefully gift-wrapped using eco-friendly, natural, recyclable gift boxes.

I occasionally recycle paper, larger cardboard posting boxes and envelopes, I don't print out receipts; all to save paper, hence trees.

If ordering multiple items as gifts for different people, please specify at checkout so I can wrap them individually or as instructed by you. 

*Please note that due to their size and particular shapes, I cannot provide the gift wrapping service for my fairy house jars/lanterns.​

------------------------------------

LOOKING AFTER YOUR POLYMER CLAY PIECES

*To prolong the life of your polymer clay jewellery, remove before swimming, bathing and showering.
*Remove before exercise.
*This is a given, but don't peel it, scratch it or bite it, no matter how yummy it looks!
*Jewellery with silver plated findings (or silver in colour) is better kept in an air tight container or jewellery box to minimize tarnishing, and the shine can be brought back to life using anti-tarnish wipes.
*Use a soft dry brush to clean miniatures and sculptures.
