TJsClays is a Latina owned brand out of southwest Texas, that primarily sells earrings handmade with love and polymer clay! I started TJsClays in November of 2020. I’ve been a music photographer since 2016 (tjmartinezphotography.com) and when I finally accepted that concerts weren’t coming back safely for a while, I realized that I needed another creative outlet during the pandemic. When I was little, my mom took me to classes for a whole summer so that I could learn how to make polymer clay miniature food. I still had all the supplies and I remembered loving it, so it was the natural choice. I started out with miniature food and quickly moved into earrings. The original plan was to create earrings just until concerts came back but by the time I finally did go back to working concerts, I was already too in love with TJsClays to let it go. It gives me a creative outlet that I can do from the comfort of my own home and at my own pace, which I love! Each piece from TJsClays is slowly handcrafted in my home studio. I primarily sell polymer clay earrings, but I have also made hair clips, car ornaments, pins, magnets, necklaces, bracelets, and car buddies, as well! Polymer clay is hypoallergenic and lightweight so there are endless possibilities to create.
