What is your background and the story behind why you started Claymade?
I have always been a creative soul, I took cake decorating classes as a child, joined scrapbooking clubs and even tried calligraphy. As I entered the working world I wanted a creative outlet that I could do after work and truly have fun! I tried painting but to be honest, I was horrible! I took ceramic classes in high school and I absolutely loved working with that medium. So one day I decided to try and make jewelry with polymer clay! It started out as a hobby because I truly just enjoy making the earrings! I'll put on my favorite music/podcast, have a cup of coffee and get lost in making earrings! My little hobby then turned into a little business soon after as I was amazed that people actually started buying my handmade earrings! I am so excited to be doing something creative that warms my soul and hopefully brings so much JOY to others as they wear them!
What one product do we need to know about and why?
The textured white horseshoes are a bestseller! Everyone loves the texture, how unique they are and how you can't even tell they are on your ears when you wear them! Check them out! You'll love them!
In three words, why do you love Pittsburgh?
