About the brand
goodbyejohanna is a handmade jewelry brand
specialising in detailed, handcrafted polymer clay earrings.
Every detail is meticulously shaped, placed, and textured
by hand. I do not paint or use molds,
everything is made from polymer clay.
I started making jewelry back in 2014, when I wanted to wear things that felt like me. Five years down the road, I feel like I've finally achieved that. I'm making things I love,
and I hope you'll love them too :)
I get a lot of questions about my shop name, but those who know me know the answer: it's a lyric from my favourite musical, Sweeney Todd - Stephen Sondheim's black comedy thriller masterpiece. I'm in love with musical theatre, metal, horror, poetry, and so-bad-it's-good type films. I'm often inspired by the songs and shows I love. I'm happiest when I'm making one-of-a-kind pieces that express an idea, feeling - or tell a story, however subtly.
"Anything you do, let it come from you. Then it will be new. Give us more to see."
