Is That a Wii-Mote in Your Ear?
September 26th, 2007
Gamer girls, if you weren’t fortunate enough to pick up the Nintendo DS necklace, here’s another fun piece of video game inspired jewelry I found. These earrings are tiny versions of the Nintendo Wii-mote controller.
Artist Thiakosia hand-sculpted these tiny Wii controller earrings entirely from Sculpey polymer clay. Nope, there’s no paint on there, which is pretty amazing given the fact that the mini remotes are just over 1-inch tall each. It must have taken a really steady hand to pull off that detail in miniature. With that surgical precision I’d bet the artist would beat me hands down in a game of Trauma Center.
You can find these mini Wii-mote earrings and a variety of other tiny clay works (including Wii-mote cellphone charms) over on the artist’s Etsy shop.
