Meet Audrey Gajeski

Today we’d like to introduce you to Audrey Gajeski. 

Hi Audrey, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Like most stories, it happened during the pandemic. I was working in a healthcare setting and schools were shutting down. I’m a mom of two kids so this made a HUGE impact on our daily lives. I became a stay-at-home mom and needed an outlet (and maybe even a side gig) to keep a spark inside me going. I took ceramics in high school and I fell in love with clay. I found some videos on TikTok and ran to my nearest craft store and found polymer clay. The name of my business comes from my two kids! I call them all sorts of sweetie names when they were babies. My oldest Oliver is honeybee and my youngest Soren is sugarbee! 

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I believe it has! I took to clay right away and it felt very natural. 

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am a polymer clay artist! It took a while to feel comfortable with the title artist but the more I grow and learn the more comfortable I am when people refer to me as such. I love making earrings! My most popular requests are wedding bouquet and cottagecore! Each collect I find myself beaming with excitement. It’s amazing to see how you grow and change in the smallest of details from just months earlier. 

The clay earring world is a bit saturated but it’s always community over Competition. I try not to get discouraged when doing events when there might be 3 or 4 other earring booths. I believe my detail sets me apart. I pour my heart into every piece and I’ve been told that people can see it! 

What do you like and dislike about the city?
My favorite thing about holland has to be the food! Mi favorita is the best place around to grab a taco and Jhomarys paradise is my favorite place to grab a mongonada! 

My least favorite would probably be that tulip time traffic
