Orange Slices… and More Items!

Sorry posts have been far between. For once, I’ve been busy making miniature food and taking photos! I’ve also been thinking about new products and what might better suit my audience, thanks to Andrew from Plug Market. He had a good point that got me thinking about what products to target at different audience types. A good friend, Juanita from JuanitaTortilla on Etsy, also suggested that I start selling my fruit canes. It could work, but could also backfire because I lack the seasoned experience that I need to make consistent-looking canes. My luck is almost 50-50 right now. I made an orange fruit cane while Juanita was visiting, and I think I rushed it a bit. I made the canes too small and I also forgot to add a light orange layer before adding the ‘skin’ layer. You’d think a miniature fruit cane could not be too small, but it is… I made it 3mm, but I have found that I prefer slices at 5-6mm. So, while it still looks alright, it’s not really up to my standards as I had hoped.

Here, you can see how they look in varied sizes.

Now, on to photos of my products!

These were just listed on Etsy and ArtFire, along with a listing combining the two to make a set.


These are earring charms that are part of my new line of interchangeable earrings. The ear wires come in 3 sizes, and each size comes in the whole set of colours, for even more options when coordinating with outfits. I hope these sound like a good idea… I’ll also be adding more options to allow buyers to ‘stack’ charms together.

  1. Thanks Juanita! I think they are quite normal-looking orange slices. I’m still happy that I can now play around with orange slices as decoration. 😀

    About the tarts, I hope I didn’t make them look too much like other artists’ tarts. I tried to stay away from small round tarts, but I can’t use the kiwis anywhere else! But perhaps they would work on tart slices…

  2. Idea!!! The tiny 3mm slices can be mandarin oranges 😀 although no one cuts them into slices, normally… then again, no one eats oranges with skins on them, but they make miniatures look nice.
