Please describe your product range.
I am a polymer clay artist and I hand-sculpt everything from the elegant to the cute to the geeky. I make jewellery, tea-light holders, fairy doors, mugs, tankards, wine glasses, wall art, box frames, journal covers, incense holders, trinket boxes, runes, vases, key rings, hair accessories, models, illustrations and much more.

I started an Etsy shop because…
I’ve always loved drawing and making things, so I’ve always made presents for family and friends. The more and more practice I had the better the creations turned out , and I really enjoyed making something that was perfect to each person’s taste. After years of this I finally built up the courage to start up my business in 2015. Since then I have participated in craft fairs, where I love the atmosphere. All the other crafters are so friendly and I love chatting with customers. I really hope I can do this full time one day, so I can quit the day job as this is my real passion.

I feel inspired by…
I am a massive geek which is clear in a lot of the work I do, I love everything from sci-fi, fantasy, martial arts, anime, computer games, horror and lots more. I also take a lot of inspiration from nature, because nothing is more beautiful. I love the organic flow of using natural designs and adding my own special touches.

When I’m working on Etsy, I like to listen to…
When I am creating, I love to listen to Levellers, Blind Melon, Pearl Jam, Jane’s Addiction, The Pixies, Iron Maiden, Stone Temple Pilots, Queen, NIN, Tool and much, much more. I love it when nobody’s home so I can sing my head off, I do feel sorry for my little cat Link and my neighbours! Sometimes I will also pop a series on in the background on my laptop.
