In 2013 I took my first pottery class and instantly fell in love with clay. At this time I was working in Human Resources. I set up a little studio in our basement and spent every spare minute with my hands in clay. I felt in my heart that it was what I was meant to do. For almost two years I worked at the office by day and potted at night while I built up my business. In 2015 my husband and I decided it was time to make Little Birdy my full time job.
During these years my pottery consisted of dinnerware pieces. Mugs and bowls, vessels that were meant to nourish your body. In 2021 I decided that I wanted to take my pottery in a new direction. I wanted my work to be filled with intention and meaning, and this was the start to my earring collections.
I have always loved working in small batches, spending my time on the tiniest of details. This way of potting lends itself to jewelry, and I have just embraced this part of myself.
My intention behind each pair of earrings is that you will wear them and feel the meaning they hold. Each design was created around a shape, and the meaning behind it. When you receive your earrings you will also get an affirmation card that goes with them. This is meant to put somewhere that you will see it, perhaps on your mirror or in your car, as a little reminder of the power you hold.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my page. I am incredibly lucky to be able to spend my days in my studio, creating work that I love.
