I'm actually allergic to chocolate (it gives me terrible migraines) but right now I'm wanting desperately to be in the chocolate eater's club just so I can own one of these beautiful pieces of jewellery by Dutch artist Jeannette Jansen. Each 'pearl' in The Chocolate Eater's jewellery range is made from chocolate wrappers and each piece of jewellery is named after the number of calories of chocolate used in the making of the piece. So we have the 3600 Calorie Necklace, the 60 Calorie Pin and the 180 Calorie Earrings. The necklace is made with purple silk thread which, despite not being a choccy eater, I associate with Cadbury's, decadence, luxury and richness. And it takes a full day to make one of these necklaces by hand. How could any girl not love this gorgeous range of jewellery and all it represents?!
elegant reminder of all those chocolates,
tongue-melting, delicious ...
Worth a 3600 kcal, but gone forever ...
chocolate light, modest and still
so elegant ...
180 kcal light but a precious combination
of every day material and 18k gold.
