This week we are featuring Wei of Honey Thistle! Wei creates polymer clay miniatures and brass jewelry. When we were little we’d ask our parents if we could buy those mini blown glass animals because miniature anything is just too cute. In each of Wei’s miniatures there’s a ton of character, making them perfect little gifts for someone who may connect with an individual piece. Additionally, for all you festival goers her brass jewelry screams dancing free-spirit! Learn more about Wei below!
: Tell us a little about yourself?
: I’m a maker and artist based in Toronto, Canada, and I work primarily with brass and polymer clay. I live with my boyfriend and cat, who keeps me company during the day while I’m tinkering away. I used to be a night owl and work into the wee hours of the morning, but have recently adopted an earlier schedule so I now get up around 5:30 am and go to bed just a little after 9 pm. We’ll see how long this lasts haha.
This week we’re featuring Ashling Gabig of Killer Sprinkles. We love her polymer clay food jewelry! She picked the name Killer Sprinkles because she wanted something that expressed her brand that was equal parts cute and sassy. Her polymer creations express just that vibe, as they are so adorable and uniquely edgy. You can find Killer Sprinkles pieces on her Etsy store. If you’ve ever been interested in running your own Etsy store or starting your own jewelry line, read on to learn about Ashling’s journey.

I have been seriously working with polymer clay for about the last two years. I also have a great day job in marketing, working at an agency as an Account Executive. My third job is being the proud mom of my sweet little senior Shih Tzu, Watson.
