About Us


Welcome to the Hot Mess

Hot Mess Design is run by Sarah, a one woman team. These designs are always made with love and are two of a kind.
Sarah is a PhD student, her research focus area is sexual violence against women.
In February of 2021 during the COVID lockdowns, she felt like she needed a new hobby to help with what can sometimes feel like, the heaviness of undergoing a PhD.
So, she bought a polymer clay beginners kit and it took over her families dining table. Sarah fell in love and started gifting her creations to friends and family.
 The small business began under the name Little Protea Clay but after some time, it felt like the soft and beautiful name was not signifying the sassy and saucy jewellery that she was creating.
With the help of some marketing wizards, it was here that Hot Mess Design was born.
Hot Mess is whimsical, fun and sometimes weird.
I hope that you will love my designs as much as I do.
