handmade clay earrings
Meet the Maker:
WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
I’m Emily! I’m originally from Ringgold, GA but have lived in Augusta for about 5 years. By day I’m an Account Manager at Wier/Stewart, and by night I make polymer clay earrings at my kitchen table. I turned a fun hobby into a fun side business!
DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
I follow a lot of other polymer clay artists that have really honed their craft. Seeing the type of products they create keeps me pushing to improve my skills!
FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I clogged for most of my childhood (as in the Appalachian dance)
FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA. Too many to pick just one, but Knuckle Sandwiches is close to the top of the list.
WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
Since I was a kid I’ve had some sort of craft or project going on—I guess it’s just in my DNA! I love working with my hands and making things that are fun and beautiful.
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS + MAKERS? Don’t worry about what other people in your creative space are doing! They’re not you and you shouldn’t worry about being them
