It’s no secret that I adore jewelry… Necklaces, earrings, brooches… Wearing an oversized ring on my pointer finger has become a signature for me and I have lots of fun ring critters that fit the bill. I have also shared that my inspiration for my owl cookies was from an owl necklace that I was gifted.
Cookie jewelry has been the buzz as of late. The amazing Julia Usher dedicated several pages in her amazing “Ultimate Cookie” book to cookie jewelry and it is absolutely incredible. Around Valentines day the Kitchn’s “love sugar cookies” blog post was making the rounds and I thought “how adorable!” The final “piece” to my cookie inspiration “puzzle”? Seeing Mariah Carey in person wearing her signature butterfly ring at her comeback performance at the Total Rewards concert. All this inspiration got me thinking… my “Critter Cookies”would make fabulous cookie jewelry! I wanted to keep it fairly simple so I thought cookie “pendants” of a Butterfly, a Lovebug and Dragonfly would be a great place to start.
I also experimented with using colorful icing but in the end, the jewelry that looked most gem and jewel like was iced using gem tones (silver, gold, black) and candy beads in matching shades.
So, after stringing the butterflies and dragonflies on long strands and the lovebugs on thin elastic gold cord, I packed them up and brought them to a night out with the girls…
Cookie jewelry success! We had so much fun wearing it… but wearing cookie jewelry does beg the question… “what do you do with it when you are done wearing it?
I think SDB Cookie Jewelry is the perfect gift for Mom this year! Coming soon “my line” of cookie jewelry critter cookie cutters (we hope to debut them shortly after Easter) and how to ice videos. Of coarse I will also make cookie jewelry pieces “to order”.
What a fun, fabulous, fashionable way to join in the cookie fun! Happy Saturday! Life is Sweet! Xo Dani
