I've been wanting to start my own small business for years but I wasn't sure what that would be. I wouldn't say Hey Lay! was born out of the pandemic but accelerated by it. I picked up resin and polymer clay at the end of 2018 but the pandemic allowed me to finally focus in and learn more about how to craft things better. I find inspiration from my art and design preference and style, family, culture, and all the other hobbies and obsessions I have which is why I have such a wide range of product styles. With a lot of advice and help from friends and family, Hey Lay! officially started on January 23 of this year with the intention of creating pieces that help others (and myself) express themselves within an affordable price range.
