It’s refreshing to see how one passion for the arts can fuel the inspiration of another. In this case, the culinary arts for the handcraft arts. Normally in my posts I highlight food, drinks or recipes, but today I thought I’d showcase the talents of some incredible designers. The subject is still food, just not the kind you can eat ;>)
Etsy.com is a haven for this esoteric category of wearable art and is a great place to lazily browse for one-of-a-kind pieces made by individual artists. Trending high: jewelry featuring anything to do with baking, cupcakes, stand mixers and alike. I purchased the Cupcake Lover necklace above a few months ago and whenever I wear it, I invariably receive a smile and a positive comment about it. The below charms from Debs Treasures allow the serious bakers to show off their love of sugar and spice and everything nice. And the wine charms from Bohemian Findings would make a nice little gift for any wine diva on your list.

And just so your stand mixer doesn’t feel left out, yes, there is now bling for it too. No joke! With all the bright and retro colors of mixers themselves being in such fashion at the moment, why not dial it up to “high speed” and add decals. They come in a ton of patterns, including the quotes of the moment (you know the “Keep Calm….” phenomenon). The Baking Words pattern above is available at Home Appliance Manufacturer, the cute Daisy pattern below is courtesy Good Mommy Ltd and why not go crazy with this 70’s throwback to Wonder Women (well, aren’t we all ladies?) from Kitchen Aid Brasil’s Coleção Series. For a touch of the Ooh-La-La, adorn it with this vintage French Icon Collection also from Good Mommy Ltd, très chic!
