Kelsey Comfort, a student from Alaska, has had her jewellery designs shared across the internet and beyond this week, thanks to her quirky cake and cookie-based designs.
Kelsey, 21, made incredibly realistic clay jewellery pieces in the shape of her favourite sweet treats. The range includes diamond rings, necklaces and earrings in the shape of truffles, cupcakes, doughnuts, pie, cheesecake and even profiteroles – all in amazingly realistic detail.
“I use toothpicks, pin and a firm paintbrush for texturizing clay, and a clay roller for evenly rolling out clay. Everything else is created with my fingertips” she explained in a recent interview. “I spend a long time on my items; many of them take up to an hour to make. I don’t mind putting that much effort into them, because I truly love the art.”
Kelsey sells her jewellery pieces at bargain prices, usually ranging between £3 and £12, but for those who prefer their jewellery made out of precious metals, rather than clay, there are plenty of other options to explore.
Jewellery in quirky shapes and styles has become more and more popular over the last couple of years, thanks to celebrity pioneers like Zooey Deschanel and Fearne Cotton, and at the bespoke jewellery design stores in Hatton Garden, you too can snap up a quirky piece of your own.
There are a number of shops in the Hatton Garden area that specialise in contemporary jewellery and personalised and rare jewellery design.
