Candy Jewelry by Edith Schneider

Let me introduce you to my beautiful and talented friend Edith Schneider, jewelry designer.


Last Friday, my husband and I attended the reception that featured her extra special Valentine jewelry made with candy, romance, and whimsey!

Edith is wearing a necklace made out of white Good 'n' Plenty licorice and the red necklace in the case in front of her is made with energizing jelly beans that she picked up at the Fancy Food Show.

The necklace on the left is made of jujubes, Menthos mints, and gummi bears.








She also made one with Life Savers, Jelly Belly, gummi bears, and sterling silver:

These gummi bears melted into their sterling silver sauna baths:












You will make a real statement when you walk into a room with licorice whips jewelry. Perfect with a black strapless gown. Please note the matching dangly earrings.











The elegance of black licorice with sterling silver:







Licorice allsorts are reaching new potential here:

Edith’s co-exhibitor Pete Zivkov made some amazing, eye-popping candy images:


If you’re in the neighborhood, Edith’s and Pete’s exhibit at the Gallery House in Palo Alto, CA will continue for the month of February.

Edith has a retail shop at Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park and you can also see some of her work at her website. See more of Pete's photos at http://www.zivkov.com/.

Oh WOW! WOW! Is this fun or WHAT?!

This is reminding me of those candy necklaces on the elastic that you could get from the ice cream man. I didn't like them much, but my sister loved them.

I remember her sucking on the candy around her neck, then stopping, then licking the candy again. Her neck was always coated with a pastel bit of slime. My mother was always scrubbing her little sticky neck!

I have to send this to my sister. She's gonna love this! Tell Edith hi!

I will be visiting San Fran & Palo Alto in April. I hope to see some of this delicious jewelry in person!

Dear tangobaby,
They are much more beautiful in person. I'm afraid my photography is not accomplished enough to combat the glare and reflections of the lights. Did your baby sister pass on the candy-loving gene to her two young ones?

Dear Gabby,
Down, Rover, down! Thank you for teaching me a new word. I'm going to have to fabricate a way to use twitterpated in one of my future posts.

Dear Paris,
Edith can make art out of anything!

Dear Melissa,
How exciting! Please be sure to tell her that dutchbaby sent you. Welcome to my blog!

I love these whimsical wonders. How fantastic. Or, should I say, "fantastical?"

Dear Relyn,
Or even "fantasmagoric"!
