Welcome to the Studio Squad!

From free workshops to group coaching, my goal here at The Studio Squad to give you the confidence to step out of your comfort zone and try new things -whether that is a new polymer clay technique, or running a thriving handmade business!  

I've been running my polymer clay jewelry business for the last 8+ years. I have an offsite studio and storefront in the historical Czech Village in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. My true passion is helping others succeed at living the creative life of their dreams. I would LOVE to work with you!

"The Studio Squad is such an amazing community and Kristin is truly the queen of canes. I have learned so much already from the tutorials and it has made me a lot more confident to create cane designs of my own! She also shares great tips on social media and has attracted such an amazing community of makers. If you’re working with polymer clay, or are interested in dipping your toes into the clay game, I would highly recommend joining!"
