Fabulous Friday Giveaway: Clay by Clay


Jessica Clay is the creative mastermind behind the gorgeous pieces of jewelery found in her new Etsy store Clay by Clay (started just two months ago!). Her store is creatively named Clay by Clay because she mainly works with metal and polymer clay. Jessica is a self taught artist but she loves learning from others online and taking classes when she can.

By day, Jessica is a lawyer but by night she is a crafter. After spending five years as an {overworked!} litigator, she decided she needed a change that would let her have a life outside work and to start a family. So Jessica changed jobs to work for a judge and started working on her jewelry in her new-found free time.

Jessica's inspiration comes mostly from the nature around her home in Minnesota. Despite living only a few miles from the interstate, Jessica and her husband regularly see deer, raccoons, rabbits, and fox. She says it is really strange seeing a group of deer crossing the street next to the gas station and a couple of blocks from the mall--I can't imagine!

Jessica loves working on simple earrings that can complement any outfit and can really be worn everyday. She also loves to make pieces texturized with real leaves from her neighborhood (although that will have to wait for awhile now that all the leaves have died!).

I am in awe of Jessica's talent and cannot believe what she can turn polymer and metal clay into--it is astounding! I hope you enjoyed learning a bit more about Jessica and seeing her incredibly neat creations.

Want it right now? Buy it!

Jessica is offering free shipping for Monkeys on the Bed! readers from now until November 14. Make sure you shop Clay by Clay before her offer expires. Please mention "Monkeys on the Bed" in the notes to seller page and she'll refund your your shipping charges.

Want to try your luck? Win it!

Jessica is generously offering one Monkeys on the Bed! reader her (or his!) choice of earrings. YAY!
