Hey canners! I’m breaking out of my self-imposed schedule to throw and extra-special weekend long giveaway into the blog mix.

Lulu The Pickle Queen is an artist who works with polymer clay and makes an array of pickle and vegetable-themed push pins (you can also get them as magnets if you don’t have a spot for pinning things). She has made a special-limited edition Food in Jars set that feature pickles, jams, and even a jar that looks like my logo.

I asked Lulu a couple of questions.

How long have you been making push pins?

I’ve been making push pins for about a year and a half. It started with pickle earrings, because I LOVE pickles, and then I began making more pickle paraphernalia. So I began making pickle push pins.

How did you get started?

I have always been an artist, but didn’t experiment with polymer clay until a couple of years ago. A good friend and I were having an art party and she said I must try polymer clay. The first thing I made was a tiny pickle and was hooked from then on.

Now, I’m trying new techniques and incorporating various mediums. It has been so much fun. Most of the time I have to stop myself from keeping everything I make. As you can imagine, I have a huge jewelry and pushpin collection.

You can find ind Lulu on Etsy and Wanelo.
