What’s Her Story?
Being the owner of a business had been a dream for the 29-year-old since her childhood. Based in Thiruvananthapuram, Anusree had pursued her MBA and worked for a year, when a sudden realization struck that it was not where she truly wanted to be. “I felt that MBA is not the right career for me and one day I took a big step and quit my job.”
Anusree found her true calling upon encountering polymer clay a year ago. It was not only light on the ears but was also a durable alternative to traditional jewellery. With no sound knowledge in the field of art, Anusree often doubted if she could initiate and run her own business. However, Anusree’s dream came true with the birth of Made of Clay only seven months ago. What began as a hobby eventually opened the door of opportunities for her and her small business. Setting up stalls at flea markets helped Made of Clay gain more fame and recognition for its quirky accessories. The Happy Street flea market organized by Triangle company was the first flea market for the small business.
At present, Made of Clay offers earrings and pendants handcrafted with highly versatile Polymer Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC). “All the earring accessories are Nickel-Free and hypoallergenic which is suitable for sensitive ears. All the products including clay are imported to maintain their quality,” Anusree affirms. The small business also plans to launch a new line of products including hair accessories that you can stay tuned for.
