Emily Adam is a self taught professional millefiori polymer clay artist working from home, a 320 year old farmhouse in rural Northumberland, England. She lives here with her Fiancee Ian. They have been together ten years and counting and hope to marry and start a family in the not too distant future!
Although born in London, Emily's family moved to York when she was young. This historical city is where she grew up until
the age of 19 having acheived her A Levels at St. Peters (founded in 627AD!). She worked mainly with clay and sculpture and acheived top grade at Art A Level but decided to read science at university for a bit of a challenge!
"I bring you bold, intricate arty little wonders that love to be intently looked at and are always noticed! By using bold black outlines and sharp sculpted images and vibrant colour, my jewellery becomes an art form to be worn and loved."
Emily moved to Newcastle to study for her degree in Criminology and Forensic Science and following her studies worked for three years as an Analyst for pharmaceutical companies Proctor and Gamble and Sanofi Aventis. Towards the end of her career as an Analyst she began exploring her creativity again and discovered the wonderful world of polymer clay! Within only a few months of beginning to make jewellery and realising she had a natural talent for millefiori sculpting, Emily quit her well paid salary to become self employed and started selling her work at a local Sunday market in Newcastle.
8 years later her self employed career has had many new twists and turns and has taken Emily on a creative adventure of trade and travel. Emily's work featured in Vogue Magazine in 2012. She began at another market on a Saturday and slowly built her online shop to begin to sell work worldwide. Emily then went on to create 'Wild Flower Trading' in 2014, the fair trade business that sees her travel to India each year. Her stall has appeared at Glastonbury Festival and WOMAD to name but a few and her business continues to grow through her hard work and sheer determination.
She now trades at large Christmas Markets and is away a lot during the summer months trading at music festivals. She now tends to create her jewellery in the quieter trading months being January-April Sep-Oct.
