Molding Hunger Games Inspired Pieces In My Hands...

My good friends Ciela and Tina have again challenged my creativity by doing some Hunger Games inspired pieces for them. It’s been a long time since a movie/novel like Hunger Games has made me inspired and kept my right part of the brain functional. But the irony of it all, the inspiration came out last... that is... after finishing all the pieces… haha! I never had any idea what the story is all about but I just feel the urge of doing them. I believe that something in the project was fascinating and without any reservation, I gave it a try…

I called this cuff “The HG Flora Cuff.” Each flower in the cuff embodied some characters and images in the film. Though the whole piece was made with polymer clay, I’ve tried to make the flowers look just as pretty as the real ones. I appreciate that Ciela made these illustrations with some inspirational quotes from the novel: 



As worn

Here are Tina’s pieces. The mockingjay necklace symbolizes rebellion and the bloody rose ring represents President Coriolanus Snow, the main antagonist in the story.

I had the great pleasure of seeing the film and found those pieces I made come to life in big screen. Haha…  It’s really a wonderful experience! Thank you Ciela and Tina for the inspiration… may the odds be ever in your favor! =)
