The Hippie Chickie Co started as an afternoon crafting session with my little sister during quarantine. Polymer clay had been trending and I wanted to know what all the fuss was about. Surprisingly enough, I came to love the versatility and vibrancy the medium offered.

When finishing my BFA, my thesis focused on the agricultural industry. Which, in the end, emphasized chickens. On that afternoon, crafting with my sister, the first thing I made was a pair of chicken earrings, which inspired the company's name.
