Hey friends ❤
I’m excited to announce some fun new pieces I’ve added to my etsy shop that I’ve been making for ages. They’re made out of a material some of you might have played with growing up to make Pokemon characters and the like. I first had the idea to make these when I stumbled upon a pile of my old perler beads in my parents’ garage. Since then I’ve made dozens of these necklaces, usually as gifts for friends. Whenever I wear mine, I get comments from strangers on the streets and so it was about time I finally put these up for sale. These necklaces are super lightweight which makes them great for taking them on the road. As a nomadic artist, I have to be super choosy about my jewelry but my perler bead necklace always makes the cut.
The funds raised from selling these necklaces will help me as I travel in Latin America (more on that soon) where I’ll be touring on my bike and making lots of art!
Check out the shop by clicking below or right here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MiyukiBaker You’ll find my Queer Scribe zines and posters as well so don’t miss out 😉
Fun fact: When I was visiting Swarthmore College, my partner gave me the great idea to take my camera out in the good weather and ask around if folks would like to model my necklaces. I texted a couple of friends but there were also a few strangers. Thanks Swarthmore–it was great fun! And look at how professional they look 🙂
This one is called Icy Moon because it makes me think of a blue moon half way to the full or new moon! Brrrr!
This one is called Almost Florida because it kind of looks like the state of Florida 😉
This one is called Candycorn (like the candy!) for it’s color theme.
This one is called Yoni for its obviously yonic shape and color! Embrace your inner femininity by wearing Yoni!
