Fill your life with the magic and whimsy of childhood:

Hi there! My name is Meghan, and I am a tea lover, a super nerd, a hoarder of cute things, a full time daydreamer, and since I was very young, I knew I wanted to create.

When I was 4 years old, my parents gave me my first set of polymer clay. I loved squishing and mixing all of the bright colors and bringing my imagination to life through sculpture. I was immediately hooked! I loved sculpting, and I loved making happy and colorful pieces that I could share with my friends and family. When I was 10, I even went to my first kids art market and sold my miniature creations! In 2012 while I was still in college, I picked up sculpting again as stress relief, but soon realized that I wasn't able to keep myself from creating 24/7. I moved from sculpting as a hobby to building a business full of adorable sculptures and jewelry, and Mariposa Miniatures was born!

I aim to offer only high quality and quirky jewelry, as well as cute collectible miniatures for both kids and those who still feel like kids. As someone who struggled with nickel allergies, I chose to make sure all of my jewelry, was nickel and lead free. My colorful charm bracelets are made from lightweight aluminum, my post earrings have hypoallergenic titanium posts, and I have non-metal options for my necklaces. I wanted to make sure no one fell in love with my jewelry and thought "oh, but I can't wear that," because yes you can!

My miniatures are made to give you all sorts of warm and fuzzy feelings when you look at them sitting on your desk, or in your shelves and shadowboxes. I love tiny figurines, because it means you can collect even more! My totems are great company, and are full of charm and character. There are so many fun critters to choose from that I'm sure you'll find one that speaks to you!

Once you've found the perfect piece, I will make sure to pack them up nice and snug so they can travel safely to your doorstep. I use recycled and eco friendly packaging like kraft paper boxes and paper crinkle fill. A huge part of my inspiration is loving the world around me, so I feel it's best to keep our wonderful earth in mind in every part of my business from creating to shipping. Please feel free to re-use packaging, or recycle what you won't keep!

Mariposa Miniatures will give you pieces to brighten up and add a little magic to all aspects of your life, from your wardrobe, to your home, to even your garden! My fairy mushrooms have been an Etsy Editor's Pick, and all of my jewelry and figurines have stellar reviews from happy customers. I can guarantee that when you find the perfect piece it will not only be whimsical and unique, but it will be hand crafted by an artist with years of experience (who happens to be a bit of a perfectionist too). I know you will come to love whatever you choose as much as I do, and I hope it puts a big smile on your face when you open up your package for the first time.

    I love being able to bring my imagination to life through any form of art, but sculpting has been my method of choice since childhood.

Frequently asked questions
What do I do if my order broke in transit?

I package my pieces as carefully as possible, but sometimes accidents happen during shipping. If your order arrives broken, please contact me within 14 days of delivery with a photo of the broken piece. I will be happy to send a replacement.

What do I do if my order never arrived?

I ship all of my domestic packages with tracking, so please check the tracking information to help locate a missing package. If it is marked as delivered, but you still haven't received it, it is best to call your local post office to see if they know where the package went.

If you have provided an incorrect mailing address, and the package is returned to me, I will notify you. Re-shipping the order to the correct address is at the buyer's expense. Please double check your address before ordering!

For international orders, if a package is late to arrive it is likely stuck in customs. International packages can take anywhere from 2-5 weeks to arrive due to customs delays.

Custom and personalized orders

I am happy to take custom orders when customs are open! My custom order turnaround time is 1-2 weeks, and the price will depend on the piece in question. Please contact me with any questions and we can set up an order!

Please note that I do not accept returns or exchanges on custom orders. I do send photos during the custom order process so if you would like changes made, please say so then.

Care instructions

While polymer clay is a durable material, it is not indestructible! Please do take care when handling my pieces. They will survive bumps, drops, and day to day wear, but will break if stepped on or crushed by a heavy object.

Pieces may be cleaned with a damp cloth, but please avoid submerging or scrubbing with cleaning products. For garden decorations, I recommend placing them in indirect sunlight to keep the colors from fading.

Please do not give pieces to young children as they are a choking hazard. My products are made with non-toxic materials but they should still not be ingested.
