During my lunch break, I spent a handful of minutes browsing Etsy and this person's jewelry struck me. It's amazing how detailed it is for being so tiny and for being made out of polymer clay.

When I was in Junior High, I went through a polymer obsession and created countless detailed statues. But comparing all of my creations to their’s is like comparing scribbles made by a child who just learned how to hold a crayon to Bernini's pliant statues.

I'm not generally attracted to things that are so sickly cute, but everything in their Etsy shop has this hard-to-define quality about it that captures the essence of Japanese culture- both traditional and modern.
