I've been making polymer clay jewelry for a few years now for my Etsy shop Charms by Nash. Specifically, I've been making miniature food jewelry. It started with a pair of key lime pie earrings in 2011, and I have committed to just doing the yummiest of jewelry pieces ever since.
Recently though, I've been inspired by some video games and Disney movies with some of my pieces. So here's a short list of cool pieces I've made, and what inspired theme.
First is the only non-polymer clay item on the list. These potion bottle necklaces and earrings were inspired by the more common potions seen in the Zelda video games. Whether you need to restore your health, magic, or both...there's a potion for you.
I've recently been introduced to the Portal video game series, and I have to say it is both addicting and frustrating at times. In the game, cake is somewhat of a bribe to complete the tests/puzzle...but we all know the cake is a LIE! The idea of the cake however sparked the fuel for hundreds of memes. And it inspired me to make some delicious new necklaces.
Alice in Wonderland is a fairy tale classic, with a couple of iconic food items. Although I'm not a fan of the Tim Burton live action movie, I loved the design of the "eat me" cake. It was my inspiration for some custom orders.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is THE Disney Classic Animated film. When the Evil Queen dips the apple, and the poison drips off into this eerie skeleton face, that image became iconic. This is by far the most popular fictional food item in my shop. I carved the face out of glow in the dark clay, giving these charms the extra little touch of evil.
