Emily Adam is a completely self taught millefiori polymer clay artist working with Fimo Professional clay. Creating from her home studio in rural Northumberland, England, she lives here with her Fiancee Ian and their cat Bootsy.
Born in London, Emily's family moved to York when she was a baby. This historical city of the vikings is where she grew up until
the age of 19, having acheived her A Levels at St. Peters (founded in 627AD, the fourth oldest school in the world!). She worked mainly with clay and sculpture and acheived top grades at Art A Level although decided to read science at university after a year out working in pubs and visiting family in Hawaii.
"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 Criminology and Forensic Science BSc. Following her degree, she 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 a few months of beginning to make jewellery and realising she had a natural talent for millefiori sculpting, Emily quit her job to become self employed and started selling her work at a local Sunday market in Newcastle.
10 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 was invited to be 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. Wild Flower Trading was created in 2014, the fair trade business that sees her travel to India every two years. 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!
Now trading at large Christmas Markets and in Summer months trading at Festivals in the UK, Emily now tends to create her jewellery in the quieter trading months being January to April and Sep to Oct.
