Polymer Clay Food Jewelry which Smells Like the Real Thing!

By on Tuesday, July 29, 2014 7 Comments

Mei Pak of Tiny Hands makes adorable polymer clay food jewelry.  Not just any polymer clay food jewelry but pieces which smell just like the real food they mimic.  Pumpkin pie jewelry smelling like our favorite Thanksgiving dessert!  Pies, cupcakes, ice cream and even a whole breakfast line - fried egg, waffles and pancakes not only look good but are deliciously aromatic!

Minneapolis based Mei started what was then a hobby back in her high school days.  But 5 years on, after graduating from her degree, she has turned her hobby into a business.  She now sells them in many stores.   Her work has also been featured in various media presentations. Two of her strawberry ice cream cones were purchased for Suri Cruise and Tori Spelling's daughter!

She and her team incorporates the food essence in the clay before baking. What is astonishing is the long list of fragrances she offers!  Mei adds, " I spend more than 80% of the time making new designs, on developing accurate color matches between the clay and the real food I am miniaturizing."

Mei says she absolutely loves food.  It's what lifts her spirits when she is down.  So she delights in making people happy with her food jewelry.  Her jewelry allows people to enjoy the aroma of their favorite food without having to worry about putting on the pounds!

  1. Those are so realistic. love the rings in particular. I would definitely be hungry all the time :)

  2. Me too. I am currently craving pumpkin pie!

  3. Thank you SO much, Pearl for this wonderful feature! You're such a wordsmith and you write about me and my jewelry better than I ever can! :) I'm off to like your Facebook page!

  4. I was thinking the same thing as Natali and Pearl- I am getting hungry!

  5. Thanks Mei! You are very welcome - such inspirational work! I couldn't make such realistic polymer clay food items even if I tried - let alone in miniature!

  6. I haven't tried pumpkin pie (it is not a common dessert in Mexico) but this one looks delicious!!

  7. I'm thinking I need that Strawberry Ice Cream Necklace!

    Hmmm - now if only you could take the 'fit jewelry' and develop a way it could take off the pounds.
