|Honey Bear Earrings|
Jason and Catrina Donham are brother and sister, working together to share their quirky creations with the world. Jason has been making miniature food for 10 years and sculpting in the more traditional media for over 15 years. Catrina has been working with jewelry for nearly as long, and they both have been working in various media since childhood. Their creations started when Jason had an idea to collaborate on a project and the rest, as they say, is history.

For the adorable product, Honey Bear Earrings (shown above right), the bears were first hand sculpted in polymer clay, then cast in honey-colored resin. The caps and faces were then painted on, followed by a thin layer of resin to prevent them from scratching off. Due to the nature of the resin, the bears have little bubbles inside them that naturally capture the same look of a real honey bear.

This level of attention to detail is found in every single item in the Donham's store. The colors are spot-on, and the texture is mind-bogglingly accurate. Pie crust looks like it could crumble, bread looks perfectly toasted, eggs have a sheen of grease, doughnut's powdered sugar is light and fluffy. Even the silverware has enough detail to keep the illusion intact. There also seems to be a level of connection and nostalgia when looking at their food. The tomato soup can conjure up warm memories of a snowy winter day, while their apple pie speaks of summer and vanilla ice cream. It's comfort at its base, simple pleasures and tasty memories. Everything about the Donham's work stands as a testament to their dedication for creating something that is truly head and shoulders above the rest.
