This month we're shining the spotlight onto our fabulous designer, Oh My Deer Creations. Based in Gippsland, Victoria - this designer creates art on earrings with polymer clay!
Our designer, Jess, started Oh My Deer Creations as a form of self-care. Her field of work outside of creating these pieces is social work and family violence counselling. Having a career in something where the subject matter is extremely serious means that being able to express and create art helps our designer to maintain balance and inject joy into her world.
Her business has grown quite quickly into a serious passion for creating art through jewellery. And much like a lot of our other designers, the greatest joy is being able to make jewellery that people can wear and feel good.
"I absolutely love seeing people wear my art! It brings me so much joy seeing other people enjoying my products as much as I do! I also really enjoy attending markets so I can meet my lovely customers, and building good connections with other small businesses."
But with all her favourite things, there are also several challenges that arise with starting your own business. This includes things like brand awareness in the industry, having a clear business vision and plan, and keeping an active social media presence.
Our designer has several exciting things coming up this year. They are looking to extend their range to include resin and acrylic jewellery along with expanding their business even further!
