The artisan known simply as HoKiou crafts tiny orbs that contain fantastical scenes. Beneath the circular glass terrariums are a myriad of subjects, including solitary houses surrounded in picturesque rainbows, spooky bats circling a haunted house, and tranquil snowfall across a wintry scene. These small landscapes are affixed to rings and metal necklace chains, adding a bit of whimsy and mystery to your everyday attire.
To produce these pieces, HoKiou sculpts them in colored polymer clay that hardens in a conventional oven. Each individual element is minuscule—some are just an eighth of an inch tall. After these 3D compositions are constructed and assembled, they’re placed under the clear dome (or in a vial) and attached to jewelry. Afterwards, they’re ready to wear.
With Halloween and the winter holidays on the horizon, Hokiou has created themed jewelry to complement the occasions. See the entire selection on Etsy.
