Today we say hello to Claudia, the talent behind Claudia Made This- find out more about her and her wonderful creations…
“I enjoy seeing customers walking away from my stall, putting their newly purchased studs and hairgrips in. It’s lovely to see someone really appreciating your work.”– Claudia.
Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….
Claudia Made This is a range of jewellery and 3D boxed prints made by Claudia Thomas, using fimo, clay and paper craft to create charming and sweet designs, suitable for children and the young at heart!
How would you describe your style?
Something a bit different, a little bit kooky!
How long have you been making your craft items?
I started making craft items 2 years ago in my summer break from University.
Do you have a best seller? If so what is it?
My cute character Clic-Clac hairgrips are always popular as they are great for smaller children and there are so many colours and designs to choose from!
What do you enjoy most about your craft?
I enjoy seeing customers walking away from my stall, putting their newly purchased studs and hairgrips in. It’s lovely to see someone really appreciating your work.
Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?
Yes, I am going to be taking part at Craftganza at the Fabrica Gallery and have also sold at The Brighton Craft Fair. I have previously taken part in a pop up shop in Rottingdean and I’m always on the look out for new opportunities.
What items and Mother’s day/ Easter gifts will you be selling at The Fairy Tale Fair?
I will be selling a range of delightfully imaginative 3D prints, which would make perfect mothers day gifts. For Easter my earrings and hairgrips would make affordable gifts for those who don’t like chocolate, or just fancy something a bit different this year!
What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?
I am currently in my third year at Kingston University studying Graphic Design. After I finish, I hope to make Claudia Made This a successful small business, doing markets more regularly and supplying my designs to shops and boutiques all over the country.
