Jewelry and I have a love/hate relationship.
While I happen to love pieces that are big, weird and interesting, most of my family resents the fact that I show up to weddings or Bar/Bat Mitzvahs cloaked in various spider broaches or mini Mad Hatter hats.
I guess they’re just not dignified.
But the polymer clay creations by Jess Firsoff are not only dainty enough to wear at even the most stuffy of occasions, they are the miniature versions of the very games I loved to play back in the day (Zelda, Mario, Duck Hint. etc), making this a very nice compromise for all involved.
Of course, I’m pretty sure that someone will be upset that my gold cartridge Zelda necklace isn’t made of actual gold but I can deal with their uppity-ass criticisms.
After-all, I am so much more cooler than any of them.
