How charming is Jessica Ryan? We’d say very! The young lady from Launceston heard Carol Haberle wasn’t well, and chose to send her some much-needed cheer. And here at Think Tasmania, we honestly feel that one random act of kindness deserves another, so we’d like to introduce a new business selling clay charms owned by a generous Tasmanian.

Gorgeous Gesture: How Charming

As we’ve told you, our dear friend Carol is having a right old time of it just now, and has been spending much of her time in hospital. We all know she’d rather be in the great outdoors, taking more magnificent photos of Tasmanian scenery. The main camera she uses for Haberle Photocards is a Sony A77 DSLR. And Jessica (or Jess to her friends) was able to create a replica charm of the camera. She then sent it to Carol (a complete stranger to her) as a get well gift.

Carol was very touched by the gesture, as she has been by all the support shown during her battle with cancer. She was also in awe of the work done by Jess and thought we should all know about her business. That’s just typical of Carol to be thinking of others, regardless of her own personal circumstances.

Handmade Collectible Polymer Clay Charms

How Charming is the name of Jessica’s business, selling handmade collectible clay charms. Jess makes her gorgeous little charms out of polymer clay which are heat cured. They are then used to make necklaces, bracelets, earrings and hair pins. All the clay charms are hand sculpted.

Jess sells a range of charms and will also make custom orders by request. She’ll have a go at pretty much any design you want. The little A77 camera she made Carol is absolutely perfect, with an amazing amount of detail.

So there you have it. People come into focus at Think Tasmania for a range of reasons, and from a range of places, but this is one of the better stories we’ve been able to share. Thanks Jessica, and all the best with How Charming in the future.

You can contact Jessica via the How Charming Facebook page, where there’s also a range of polymer clay charms for sale. Jess has also been known to have her How Charming stall at the Daisy Chains + Desert Boots Market held from 9:00am to 1:00pm at the Burnie High Gymnasium on the first Sunday of every month.
