What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Portion Control


Shay Aaron

Beloved and I have been half-assing Weight Watchers for a couple of months now. While we haven’t lost much weight, the diet has resulted in a total obsession with food, and portion control is forever on our minds. Enter the teensy food sculptures by Shay Aaron.

As much as it was love at first sight, when I discovered that you can buy these mini masterpieces as jewelry, and I just about lost my mind! Aaron’s phenomenal eye for composition and attention to detail makes his 1:12 scale food sculptures true art, and he likes to make little jokes, too.

“Welcome to my little grocery store. Please feel free to contact me with any tiny question.” -Shay Aaron Miniatures on Etsy

You can check out all of Aaron’s adorable tiny foods on Flickr, and you can get yourself a pair of fried egg cufflinks or s’mores earrings in his Etsy shop!

  1. Gives a whole new meaning to, “I’ll just have a little slice of cake,” doesn’t it? These are adorable.

  4. Like you, I am a sucker for miniatures. I just find them enchanting, whatever the medium. I was contemplating the other day the possibility of creating a miniature doll house sort of thing in my retirement years. Anyway, as a foodie, miniature grub is pretty appealing.
