I've been working with polymer clay and creating gorgeous earrings which sell in my online store and around the country in physical stores. I use clay as a way to decompress and relax and have an awesome time playing with this incredible medium.

It's fun to use, and so easy once you know what you're doing. Join me in a class to get lots of helpful tips and advice, plus a few giggles along the way!

Loved this class. Zara was an amazing teacher and gave us lots of tips and tricks for making various types of marbled earring studs. I also had a few cutters from a DIY box I got for Christmas and put them to use too! The hour flew by so fast and I am so happy how my little batch of marbled earrings turned out!

I am 12 years old and found Zara to be amazing as she explains each step in detail, including all the basic skills you need to work with polymer clay. I was able to make 6 different earrings and feel confident to apply the skills I learnt. I highly recommend!

Make Santa Stud Earrings



It was so fun to create these polymer clay santa studs. Loved learning each step along the way. Zara give a lot of info about polymer clay and I learnt a lot on how to shape the clay and work with it to give it texture and intricate design. These mini Santa have turned out so very cute and adorable, I was very happy to have done this class.

Really enjoyed this class. It was my first introduction to working with polymer clay and making my own earrings. I have a small obsession with earrings and have been fascinated by the amazing things I see people make with polymer clay for a while now, so it was great to dive in and try my hand at it! Zara was a great teacher, easy to follow and understand via Zoom and the set-up of her camera to show both her and the earrings she was making was very helpful and clear. Will certainly look at other classes with Zaraand will be checking out her great  + more
