"Chew Face" comes in part from my family, who have called me Chewy since I was four. I figured it was appropriate to incorporate the name into a shop about foodstuffs!

If you don't see your favorite food in my shop, please feel free to message me. I love creating new designs!

I also make custom, adult-sized dance hula hoops. If that strikes your fancy, check out my other Etsy shop, Jess Hoops: http://www.etsy.com/shop/JessHoops
