I recently started working at a fun little restaurant that mostly does sandwiches and hamburgers. Ive been wanting to make some polymer clay food for a while, and the only jewelry I can really wear to work is earrings. And thus the Cuban earrings came to be!



The menu says:
The Cuban
Thinly sliced ham, melted swiss cheese, dill pickles, and a dijon mayo pressed between a ciabatta roll.

Here are some of the "fresh" clay ingredients I started with. (The pickle seeds are actually sesame seeds. Everything else is clay.)


I don't have a picture of the fresh colored bread and all of the swiss was used up, but put it all together, bake at 275F for about 25-30 minutes and voila!




And it's only about an inch big. Proof of it's mininess.

Wow!  I am amazed at the detail.  I was convinced it was a real sandwich, and a tasty looking one at that!

The bread detailing and color shading in the ingredients is so nice (drools on keyboard for ciabatta bread.. )

I definitely thought it was a real sandwich and was wondering what the metal was doing there!!  Nice work!

Those are the biggest compliments, saying you thought it was real and drooling! Thanks!

Yeah, you got me fooled too...
Like the others I thought it was a real, small sandwich.
And I was also thinking what's the function of the metal.. Wink

So, well done! Very funny!

Wow - they do look delicious! They are also humorous! Do you think the restaurant would sell these earrings?
