Nicoleta Stoian is a Romanian artist who makes wonderful 3D polymer clay portrait jewelry as you can see from her store NicomadeMe.  She first ventured into the polymer clay world back in 2010. Since then, her passion which began as a hobby has become her living.  She was able to quit her day job a couple of years ago.

She clearly loves making her unique custom art based on photographs from her clients.  She makes tiny family jewelry as well as larger desk picture art pieces.  Her pendants and earrings feature couples, brides, best friends, mother and child and so on.

Her work is full of whimsy and color. Wonderful conversation pieces besides allowing people to wear their favorite memories. Nico said, "I'm having a lot of fun making every portrait, it inspires me the story behind each one and helps me give it that special touch that makes it personal and unique."

The bulk of her work is in family pet portraiture.  She has a great gift for sculpting in clay!
