Coast & Cove

I would never have described myself as a particularly creative person, and certainly would never have imagined I'd be creating and selling things I'd made with my own two hands.

In December 2018, stressed out from my job and coming off the high of many completed home renovations, I needed a creative outlet. I discovered air dry clay, and made ornaments to give to friends and family for Christmas. I loved how easy the clay was to work with, the endless options, and how simple and beautiful the finished products were.

In early 2019, I turned to polymer clay. I tried different techniques and colour combos, but always came back to ocean-inspired colour palettes and simple, understated styles. The styles and colours that resonate most with me are those that remind me of my childhood cottage on the Northumberland Straight - the sights, sounds, and memories of my favourite place in beautiful Nova Scotia.

Each pair of earrings is unique and handmade by me in Halifax, NS and 10% of all sales are donated to the NS SPCA.
