Miniature Sculpture Jewelry

I’ve always loved sculpture. The tinier the better. 3-D illustrations fascinate me. If you want to see what I mean, try checking out a book illustrated by Salley Mavor, Kim Fernandes, or Jo Litchfield sometime. It is an art you don’t see very often. My skills in miniature sculpture certainly came in useful when I started making dollhouses. I saved myself a lot of money making my miniatures rather than buying them all the time. With polymer clay, I was limited only by my imagination when it came to what I could and couldn’t have in a dollhouse. Eventually I moved into making miniature sculptures for jewelry. Tiny sculptures take a lot more time and energy than you can possibly imagine. If you’re not careful you can destroy hours of work by just sneezing at the wrong moment or squeezing too hard without realizing it. I’ve posted a few examples of my work above. Most of the sculptures pictured are smaller than a quarter in real life.
