Foodies go gaga for finger foods, and now you can add FingerFoodDelight to that list. Owner Wincy Helm recently founded an online shop (, featuring miniature food jewelry, including rings, pendants, earrings and more.

“I love food very much, and I thought it would be very cool and unique to have a cute replica of your favorite food on the tip of your finger,” Helm says. “And the best thing is that you don’t have to gain any weight by wearing it!”

Helm, a Hong Kong native, creates all the jewelry pieces on her own and simply glues dollhouse miniatures to wood bases and metals a simple process resulting in a masterpiece.

“I’ve always wanted to open my own business,” she recalls. “When I took a trip to Japan at the beginning of the year, I noticed many miniature food pieces, and that’s how the idea took off.”

According to Helm, the concept of her business is to provide unique jewelry to her customers at an affordable price. Most items sell between $10 and $30.

“It’s most rewarding when I hear that people like my jewelry and I see people wearing it,” she states. “Some of the most popular pieces include ones featuring dessert, coffee, doughnuts, sushi, pizza and pasta.”

For Helm, her goal is matter of fact. She simply wants to run a successful business, and fortunately for her she’s on the right track. Helm says FingerFoodDelight has been doing well, especially with the holidays just around the corner.

Spaghetti, anyone?

“It’s not easy being an entrepreneur, but you have to really enjoy what you’re doing and never give up on your dreams.”
