“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” – Dr. Seuss.
The notion that we are all unique and there is no one else like us in the world is the inspiration behind Rare + Good Clayworks, a small, woman-owned business that designs and creates small batch polymer clay earrings that also give back.
“We all deserve something as beautiful and unique as we are – at an affordable price,” explains Rare + Good Clayworks Founder Jamie Glavic.
Each of the pieces from Rare + Good Clayworks is handmade, so no two pieces are exactly alike, just like all of us.
In addition to creating unique pieces at an affordable price, Rare + Good Clayworks gives back a portion of proceeds to the community.
“Last month, 10 percent of our sales were donated to Welcome House of North Kentucky,” says Glavic. “Currently, $5 from each sale of earrings from our Pollinator Series will go to support the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden’s Pollen Nation program.”
Glavic herself is a University of Cincinnati alum and currently works as a public relations professional. “I started Rare + Good Clayworks during the pandemic, officially launching the shop at the end of November 2020,” she says. “I’m an earring collector and I began experimenting with polymer clay in August 2020. One YouTube tutorial led to another and in a matter of weeks my love of art, color mixing, and design inspired me to jump in and commit to starting my own LLC.”
When you shop Rare + Good Clayworks, you’ll find a variety of earrings ranging from studs to drops to dangles. “We have a style and design you’ll love,” adds Glavic.
Glavic says that although her business is young she’s always refining and adding new designs to the collection.
With the arrival of 2021, Glavic says she’s hoping to build wholesale relationships with other women-owned boutiques and businesses in and around the city who complement the Rare + Good Clayworks brand. They’ll also be participating in local community markets when it is safe to do so.
