Jewelry has the ability to make us feel rich, pretty, standout, but Catrina's Toybox hits us with bittersweet nostalgia. Our childhood, especially the millennial generation, grew up playing old school video games with pixel graphics. With game related jewelry we can transition into a different stage of our lives without leaving behind a big part of us. With Nintendo Cartridge Cuff Links and Super Mario Block Earrings, we get to wear a bit of our past. Another great part about it is that if you want custom made ones, you can request what game label that will go on the carts.
Catrina doesn't only make game related items, she makes miniature food jewelry and animal bookmarks! Everything is handmade using polymer clay and resin and then turned into unique pieces.
I received the Pixel Heart Necklace and I fell in love! It was packaged securely in a small cardboard box with cushion inside. This necklace costs $15.50, which isn't bad for a handmade multi-piece chain. If you ever played a game with heart icons for health, you know it'll decrease when you take some damage, and start blinking when you're close to dying. This pixellated process of life is linked together by jump rings and chains creating a short necklace. I wore it with a plain black top so it stands out!
If you're into miniature kawaii things or a gamer at heart, take a look at Catrina's Toybox! It won't disappoint, these are truly high quality products.
