I'm Jodie, the hands behind Shapeshift Designs handmade jewellery.
My adventure with polymer clay began towards the end of 2015, when my 4 year old wanted to make some polymer clay angry birds. He would spend hours making play doh angry birds that were too "squishy", and wanted something more permanent. I was looking for a creative outlet after leaving my job in the insurance industry to stay at home with my two small children, so with the leftover clay I started making presents for family members, and clay bead necklaces to match my own outfits. Little did I know it would turn into a small business 8 months later. It took until August 2016 to practice, learn a few valuable lessons, and build enough confidence to start selling my pieces.
Since August 2016 I have been attending monthly markets here in Perth, and selling my creations online on Etsy.
2017 has lead me into learning more about glass, acrylic, and resin jewellery, and I'm looking forward to learning more about these mediums every day.
I'm really grateful for this opportunity to share what has always been a passion for me, and hope that you'll find my pieces both unique and affordable.
