Hey! I’m Lauren. I’m a wife and a mother to two beautiful children, Harriet & Franklin…Har-klin…See what I did there?! I’ve been with my wonderful husband Dan for 10 years and he’s my absolute rock!
I’ve always been creative and a bit jewellery obsessed and it has always been my dream to own my own business.
My love for Polymer Clay started as a child, I spent many hours moulding small animals and trinkets and loved the endless possibilities with it. This developed later in life into cake making, I’ve dabbled in crochet (failed), knitting (also failed!) and i’ve always loved making jewellery from beads and wire…so i’ve never been afraid to get stuck in and get creative with anything I can get my hands on!
I finally took the plunge to start my business in May 2021, lockdown and my incredible mum being diagnosed with breast cancer was the biggest kick up the backside, life is too short to wonder what if? So i’ve thrown myself into it and 2 years on i’m still learning, growing and challenging myself everyday to get better and better. You’ll often see my mum at markets with me, she’s been such an incredible support for me since day one of this business, really couldn’t have done it without her!
Although I’ve always worn an eclectic mix of jewellery and LOVE statement earrings, I was getting fed up with the constant pulling on my ears and feared that I was going to create permanent damage to my lobes. So I figured…why not make my own?
So here we are! You’ve probably noticed that my collections do not have any particular “style” as I like to be inspired by anything around me! It’s true that you never know what you’re going to find here. But what I can say is, it’s guaranteed to be one-of-a-kind and truly unique.
I’m passionate about making Harklin Creations available to ANYONE…that includes those with extremely sensitive ears or without pierced ears. You’ll find that I offer a selection of clip on or metal free options on my listings.
It means the world to me that you are here & reading this, thank you so much for supporting my small business & I really hope you find something you love!
