You might think the brightly colored shapes of Donna Kato’s millefiori necklace almost look good enough to eat, like candy, but think again. The intricately shaped and decorated pieces are actually formed from polymer clay. 

An artist and instructor, Kato creates all kinds of jewelry from different materials, but is especially adept at molding and shaping clay into rings, watches and sculptural items.

As Donna explained to Trend Hunter, instead of using paint, she uses millefiori, many colors of clay.

Kato’s pins sport witty sayings which would certainly be great conversation starters.
