Salmon Sushi Charms

Sunday, September 5, 2010
I had an order for salmon sushi charms and to my despair, I didn't have the color chart for the salmon-colored mix! I worked for a solid two days just working through trial and error to figure out the right color measurements, size and shapes. The rice bits took a long time too! Sometimes rolling teeny tiny clay pieces can be therapeutic but if you've just moved houses and it's 2 o'clock in the morning, it's not very fun. 

Anyway, I absolutely love how the color turned out. It's way more realistic and salmon-y than my previous attempt. They did come out a little larger than my usual jewelry pieces, so I plan to make smaller versions to sell permanently at Tiny Hands. 
What is your favorite sushi? I love salmon and tuna sushi, mm! If there is one thing I had to live on for the rest of my life, it would have to be sushi. Hands down! What other kinds of sushi designs would you like to see me make?
