Where It All Began
How did Wonderfully Made come about? Well it goes back to an art project that my art class did during the Fall of 2020. We had a small piece of white Sculpey clay that we could create what we wanted. At first, I was struggling to see what to make because it was such a small piece of clay, and I was used to working with slabs of clay to make mugs or bowls. However, I ended up making a sunflower, Why? Well, because I live in Kansas! If you have never been here, let me tell you, there's a lot it offers, even if it's pretty flat! Anyways, I really enjoyed working with smaller amounts of clay because I could be really detailed with it.
I was going to start doing more projects with polymer clay in art, but God knew there was more opportunities that could be done with this. I stumbled upon the Instagram account of a polymer clay jewelry store during Small Business Saturday. I was so intrigued by all the different designs, and I started thinking "What if I did that?" The Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge was coming up, and I decided I could do this as a fictional business. At this point, I was still unsure on how successful this business was going to be, but after receiving some feedback, I thought it was worth a shot. Along the way, God just kept nudging me to have faith and continue to pursue this dream of mine. After winning the county YEC, I was able to purchase some of the bigger items I had planned on purchasing WAY later on.
So now here we are. It's a reality, not just a dream anymore. Wonderfully Made has been and will be a work in progress, but I am ready to serve all of you with creating beautiful earrings. I want to provide you with high-quality earrings that are locally made. One of my goals is to help you find your perfect pair (plus a few more!). Whether you love a bold earring or some simple studs, I want to create the perfect earrings for you. Moreover, I am SO excited to help empower you and others through this new little business.
