Meet the Maker:
WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
My name is Molly and although I’m originally from Chicago, I’ve called Augusta home since I was 10 years old. I am a kindergarten paraprofessional by
DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
I condition blocks of polymer clay, mix up my own unique colors, and then play around with different shapes and textures. I then bake the pieces, sand them, and add the appropriate hardware. Each piece is lightweight and one of a kind.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
I’m inspired constantly by things all around me. I especially love looking to nature for fun and playful earring ideas.
FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I have the sweetest, most mischievous mastiff puppy named Fig Newton.
My favorite thing about downtown Augusta is how perfect it is for date nights! With so many unique and fun small businesses, there’s always something new to do.
WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
I love making earrings because I find the process both exciting and relaxing. There’s nothing better than seeing a design in my head, working to make it a physical reality, and then getting to wear it the next day.
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS + MAKERS?
Take in as much information on techniques as you can. Make things YOU would enjoy owning. Your tribe will find you!
