Hop City Design Co. was a silver lining from the COVID pandemic.

Always having a creative spark and creating art in different mediums throughout the years has been a mainstay in my life. From fiber crafting to furniture flipping and everything in between I have gravitated to creating with my hands when I have felt overwhelmed or stressed. When I came down with COVID had was forced to slow down from my full time job, what was left in isolation was a lot of You Tube watching and exploring.  After many many hours of watching everything I could find on making Polymer Clay jewelry I set out on a mission to create.  Over the course of months and months, failed pieces and lots of learning I have honed my craft and found my path in the polymer clay world. With the encouragement of my family I decided to make this love into a small business.  Each piece is truly created from my love of the craft. While each pair of earrings takes no less than three hours, seeing them go from a raw block of clay to a shiny beautiful piece of jewelry is so fulfilling.

Thank you for shopping around at my handmade beauties as well as the other pieces that I have curated to go along with them.
