This following quote came through loud and clear whilst chatting with a very enthusiastic & creative lady at The Handmade Show last weekend.
You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have. — Maya Angelou
The enthusiasm oozing out from Samantha, of Samantha Jones Designs, touched me incredibly. It's definitely catchy! When someone talks to you about their love of creating and the miles of ideas coming through that they just can't catch up with them - "too many ideas and not enough time to do them all" - and how life could be 24/7 full of designing and creating, it's bound to have an effect on the listener.
Samantha is passionate about what she creates. She loves rich textures and vibrant colours and creating Photographic Designs and Polymer Clay pieces that reflect this. She had worked in the corporate world for 20 years and always had a creative outlet of one type or another. She discovered the medium of Polymer Clay and what began as a hobby turned into a passion. With her youngest child starting school in 2013, she decided to “seize the moment” and start her own small business – Samantha Jones Design, unique polymer clay jewellery and photographic designs.
Samantha says -
Polymer clay is such a beautiful medium to work with. What you are able to create with it is limitless. I love jewellery and was always searching for something unique with rich colour and wonderful textures and I can incorporate it all – using clay.

Pay her a visit and set a date to meet her at one her upcoming markets - you're sure to come away with a smile, a great feeling within ... and possibly one or two of her fabulous creations.
Well, the yearning to create has definitely been aroused in me. Although it hadn't left me entirely over the last few years, it definitely went on leave and is ready to come back. Thank you Samantha, it was great chatting with you at The Handmade Show.
