Thanks for visiting Hip Earth Designs!

We’re Sarah Pennington and Shelia Porter, a couple of polymer clay artists, headquartered in rural,north eastern Kentucky.

We live surrounded by the nature that inspires our handmade, functional art creations.

Altered tin boxes for use as cigarette cases, wallets, stash boxes and storage for small items

As new polymer clay artists, we love to experiment with this fun and beautiful medium – so you’re likely to find us dreaming up all sorts of creations in the future.

But for now, we specialize in creating unique cigarette case wallets, hand-crafted earrings, necklaces, bracelets and gorgeous holiday ornaments.

About Our Art

We create eclectic art works and functional pieces that use bright colors, earth tones, varying textures and simple lines to put a fabulous, kitschy spin on the natural elements that inspire our work.

Our creations are handmade by creating designs and images using the fun and functional creative medium known as polymer clay.

This plastic-based clay is comparable to a mix between silly putty and play-dough with just as many creative possibilities.

Learn more about this medium by visiting our FAQ page.
