This project has been in the works for quite some time, and I’m so excited that it’s finally finished! Meet Selwyn Crowley… or what’s left of him. This swashbuckling pirate found his buried treasure, but it cost him his life. Now he’s destined to guard this chest in solitude, with only the sand and sea as companions.
I’ve been excitedly waiting to share my latest commissioned work with you all, and the time has finally come! A customer contacted me with a brilliant request – to miniaturize an Instagram account for a friend. To celebrate their new location’s grand opening, the folks at Mother Clucker – purveyors of yummy fried chicken in the UK – were gifted with some of my miniature recreations of their dishes featured on Instagram!
I had so much fun making this mini chicken collection, and I hope you enjoy. Thank you for the opportunity, Thomas! 🐓
With summer right around the corner, I’ve been dreaming of a tropical getaway! I envisioned a miniature tiki bar in Hawaii, surrounded by lush greenery and an oasis, and I got to work. I built the entire tiki bar from scratch, and since building furniture and structures isn’t normally my strong suit, I’m absolutely thrilled with the end result!
To complete the look, I wanted the tiki bar’s surroundings to be lush, green and tropical, so I landscaped a rock formation (complete with little waterfalls) with palm trees, bamboo and other green vegetation. For my first time landscaping in miniature, I’m very happy with how it turned out!
These adorable like tiki guys are ceramic beads I found at The Crafty Bead on Etsy!
I just love this type of “directional” beach sign, so I created it in bright, tropical colors with fun sayings. The pineapple on top is a button, but it worked perfectly to give the sign a finishing touch.
This tiny little hula girl and the toucan perched on the sign below are also ceramic beads. Aren’t they cute?
And here it is after dark! I love how the colored lights look at night!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this mini tropical getaway! For your very own tiki-themed products, ranging from signs to tea towels to cocktails, make sure you visit the Summer section of my shop!
I am beyond thrilled and honored to be featured in the October 2017 issue of American Miniaturist magazine! I can’t tell you how excited I am to see my work featured in its glossy pages!
