From miniature jewelry to miniature dollhouse cuties :D

I started working with polymer clay around November 2010 making miniature food jewelry. My real passion was making miniature food but here in Puerto Rico dollhouse miniatures is something that you don't see or grow up with. I just simply didn't know there are thousands of people that love to collect the pieces that I was making. I did not know what to do with my miniature polymer clay food so I said to myself, " That's it! I can make a necklace out of these!" and so I did.

Doing research and of course looking trough Etsy I discovered the dollhouse world. All those amazing and realistic details drove me to explore this beautiful world. I started to work on a smaller scale, since my jewelry is bigger than the usual dollhouse scale, and created some delicate pieces. I even created some miniature books too!

I am an art student and when my sculpting class came to my life I was horrified. I didn't like to sculpt at all but now I like to make tiny things with my hands and finally realized they were sculptures! Now this is my passion. Hope you enjoy.

♥ Everybody loves Rainbow Cake! ♥

One day at the art store I saw this very bright and beautiful box of colors full of something called Polymer Clay. It was like a variety pack. I didn't know at that moment what polymer clay was or how to work with it, I just brought it because of the colors! When I got home I started to think; "What am I supposed to do with this?" I started to play with that thing that reminded me so much of my childhood when I had my kitchen play set, a set of plastic food and my imagination. I loved to make hotdogs with dough cut them and put them on a plate! I discovered my passion for food since I was a little girl.


Driven by that passion the first thing that came to my mind was a cupcake. My first piece was a cupcake :D (A really weird one I have to say lol) Then I started to make different kind of dishes and wala!! a rainbow cake!!! Everybody seems to be drawn to this beautiful combination of color. This lovely cake has been my best seller. I always try to vary my work. This one is a new version. The difference? Thinner layers and the frosting in between. I like this one better... what do you think? *** Want to learn how to make it? Check out my tutorial here: Rainbow Cake Tutorial

Process: Creating my own Kitchen Furniture


  I just started creating some furniture for my miniature kitchen!! 

My main purpose is to take pictures of my miniature food jewelry to make them look cuter than they are!! I looked for some inspiration online because I didn't have a design yet but ideas where jumping from everywhere.

I'm not used to drawing much.  All of my design I keep them in my hard drive (my brain :p) So I had an inspiration overdose.

  I went to an art store and brought some balsa wood.

Went home and I just couldn't stop working!! 
Measuring and cutting the pieces
