We also have a huge selection of styles – there really is something for everyone! We also offer custom earrings, including bridal styles I thought about our company name for a while, and landed on Made With Love, Lauren because our pieces are truly made with love, for you to love!”

Each precious piece is handcrafted using polymer clay and hypoallergenic nickel-free hardware, so even sensitive ears can look great in Hill’s products.

“Most people think of ceramic clay when they hear the word clay, but it’s quite the opposite,” says Hill. “They are super light and durable – they even flex! It is really awesome. One of my favorite parts of in-person markets is explaining polymer clay to people and showing them how flexible and lightweight earrings are.

The delightful patterns feature everything from flowers and fruits to minimalist twists.

“I draw my inspiration from nature, the wallpapers I see, clothing trends, etc.,” says Hill. “When I have a creative block, I sit down with all my supplies – textures, screen prints, shapes – and create. Mixing new colors also sparks new ideas!”

“I’m constantly making new pieces,” says Hill. “I usually have new product launches on our website every two weeks on Sunday afternoons.”

Hill says if you’ve got your heart set on a pair previewed on social media, it’s best to act fast.

“For launch days, I typically have five to 10 pairs of each style available,” Hill notes. “They are made slowly in small batches which I think makes them so unique! Often they are different from each other giving you really unique pieces.
