I’m quite convinced that my passion for jewelry began with the candy necklace. This iconic sweet treat can be found in suburban convenience stores all across the U.S. I can still feel the slobbery elastic cord against my skin as I devoured each sugary bead.
Halloween is approaching, and I am sulking about the candy that won’t be coming my way. In hopes of reversing this bitterness and satisfy my craving in a fat-free, calorie-less way, I picked up my imaginary pillowcase (yes, I’m that old) and flashlight, and went trick-or-treating online for some sweet jewelry. Literally. What I found was astounding, and only a little bit creepy. Loads of people are obsessed with making jewelry that looks like candy or making jewelry from actual candy. Lots of this can be chalked up to the Kawaii craze, and the rest…well, see above.
The image galleries below are organized by treat type…just like I used to meticulously sort my Halloween haul. Feast your eyes on this super yummy crazy deliciousness!
