About Us


Sue Smith, the owner of Keepsake, designing polymer clay gifts to make you smile.

Hi there. I'm Sue Smith and the creative hand behind Keepsake's artisan objects.

 I first discovered my passion for polymer clay after a chance encounter with a polymer clay lizard in Denver Airport, which I then tried to replicate. It didn't go well.


After several years of practice, and some wonderful training in the USA, I have developed a personal style applied to the objects that I offer.


Keepsake gifts are proudly New Zealand made and are often influenced by New Zealand landscapes and native animals.


Keepsake trains and employs local staff, proudly remaining 100% kiwi owned and operated.
