Svetlana lives in the Ukraine raising her two children, twins. When on maternity leave in 2011 she was looking for a gift idea for a friend. As she couldn't find anything suitable she decided to make it herself. Once she found a material she liked - polymer clay - she was hooked. "I made my first figurine - it was a sewing machine 9 years ago. From what was left of the material purchased for the gift I decided to keep experimenting and really got sucked into the whole process and all the possibilities. I started from making polymer clay jewelry accessories and then moved back to doing the little miniatures for dollhouses. I got the idea about dollhouse miniatures after I participated in a handmade exhibition that was themed for "Alice in Wonderland" where I made up a special tea set." Now, Svetlana's miniature creations live in more than 30 countries worldwide. Wow! You can follow her journey on Instagram @sweetminidollhouse.
OHM discovered Svetlana's Instagram account when looking for mini accessories for the OHM Gnome dollhouse we use to have. Her posts were honest and we were inspired. It was a joy to see her art. After chatting a little via DM we placed our first order. The whole communication experience was smooth and genuine. The package arrived fast, packaging was handmade with a personal note included. OHM collaborated with Svetlana on the release of BUNNY REAPER. Her little tiny miniature easter themed cookies and eggs were included in each package making the packaging extra special and unique. OHM is thrilled to work with Svetlana on creating her sterling silver dream. A sweet ice cream cactus: SWEECTUS.
