Hello there, and welcome to Thea’s eclectic world..

Hello you! Thanks for dropping by my blog, where I’ll be exploring a diverse range of creative topics. I’m Thea, and I’m excited to share this creative journey with you.

About me

Having graduated from the London College of Fashion, I ventured into non-creative fields for a while. However, my love for fashion, especially costume jewellery, never waned. This love led me to explore online tutorials and ignited a passion for crafting unique jewellery pieces.

A journey of creativity

In early 2015, I decided to take my curiosity a step further and enrolled in short taster courses at the London Jewellery School and City Lit. These experiences opened up a fascinating world of possibilities, introducing me to the captivating art of working with polymer clay, glass beads, metal wires, and more.

The Magic of Polymer Clay

One particular three-hour course on polymer clay left me in awe. The versatility and effects I could achieve with this medium were simply incredible. Even more inspiring was witnessing a class of 12 people create entirely unique pieces based on the same demonstrations. It was then that I knew I had found my creative calling.

Embracing the journey

In the same year, I launched my website to share my passion with fellow jewellery enthusiasts. My goal was to offer distinctive and exceptional pieces that bring joy to those who appreciate the allure of handmade art.
