This super cute ring was the perfect accessory for my tea party. I got tons of compliments on it. It's elegantly made but somewhat delicate so I'd be careful waving your hands about if you're prone to being clumsy. It took quite a while to ship (not counting the making time which I knew would be a while) but when it finally arrived it was packaged really nicely and in perfect condition.
Doing what you love is freedom ...Loving what you do is happiness
I was studying graphic design at the University of Plastic Arts in Old San Juan, PR. As part of my curriculum, I had to take a class in painting. My final project consisted of representing the theory of color. The professor didn’t tell us what type of project he wanted; he just said “Surprise me”. Looking for some inspiration, I went to the art supply store and I saw this very bright and beautiful box of colors full of something called polymer clay. It was a sort of starter / variety pack of colors. I didn’t know what polymer clay was at the time and had no idea what I would do with it but I bought it anyways thinking I could do something with the combination of colors.
Sitting at home I remembered that every conversation I had with my professor would somehow always end up on the topic of food, sharing recipes and how much he loved ham. So for my final project, I decided to create miniatures dishes using the color theory, photograph them and include a recipe for each dish. For example, I used the polymer clay to sculpt a pasta dish with tomato and basil as the complementary colors. My professor just loved it! As we exhibited our work for the class, one of the students said, “Hmm you can turn that into a necklace”. Now here I am, almost 4 years later sculpting miniature food jewelry with polymer clay and sharing my creativity and love for art with others.
Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that my work would have been featured in magazines, or even better one of my creations used as a focal piece in a Korean soap opera!!! That box of beautiful and bright colored clay has allowed me to live my favorite quote; “Doing what you love if freedom and loving what you do is happiness”.
