Have You Seen This?

Remember when you were in elementary school and you would make your mom necklaces out of pasta for Mother’s Day?

A jewelry designer has taken that concept, but turned it into a luxury product. Alison Lou has created a line of pasta-themed jewelry, and it’s a perfect way to pay homage to a food we all love.

You could grab a penne ring:

Or wear a combination of different types of noodles in each hole:

We love the idea of showing off our love of pasta. It’s a delicious food, it’s versatile (top it with Alfredo sauce, marinara, turn it into ravioli, etc.) plus it looks adorable when crafted into jewelry. Here are a few other food items we think would serve as perfect bauble inspiration:



Is there a better day of the week than Taco Tuesday? We think not. You could pay homage to everyone’s favorite, easy-to-hold food with a line of taco-themed items. How about a dainty little taco ring? What about earrings where one earring is a taco and the other is a margarita? Don’t forget the guacamole-themed accessories too.



The ultimate comfort food, pizza certainly deserves its own line of jewelry. You already seen plenty of shirts in its honor, now lets elevate that and turn it into jewelry.



Sushi is a food that is equal parts visually appealing and delicious, making it the perfect contender for its own jewelry line.



Wouldn’t the cheerful little sprinkles and bright pink frosting look so precious on earrings, a pendant, or a bracelet?



We realize that most of these items aren’t exactly the healthiest, and we’re okay with that. We love and respect you, salad, but you aren’t worthy of your own jewelry line just yet.
