Metta Clay started 6 years ago with a DIY attempt at my own jewelry. I fell in love with the versatility of polymer clay and couldn't stop creating. When I decided to turn my art into a business, I didn't want to just do it for myself, so I also made it my vehicle for making some sort of difference in the world.
The word, metta, means loving-kindness, non-violence, and the wish for the happiness of others. This philosophy is the backbone of my business. I wish for the happiness of my customers, but it goes deeper than that.
The selling of a human being sounds unreal, yet human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry. I feel so strongly about this issue and want to support the people who are working directly to solve it. That's why 10% of my profits are donated to Prajwala, a non-profit organization based in India that is fighting to end sex trafficking and rehabilitate survivors.
