A Baker’s Creations Jewelry {Giveaway!}

A Baker's Creations Jewelry { Giveaway}

I am so, so excited! This giveaway has been in the works for a while now, and I just can’t wait any longer to share it with you. Ladies, this one is for you, but guys, don’t run off just yet — these would be the perfect gift for any jewelry-loving baker in your life. Or just anyone who loves cake, for that matter.

When I first saw A Baker’s Creations jewelry hanging on a rack at my local bakeshop, I got butterflies. I’m not kidding, it felt like I had met my jewelry soulmate. To be honest, I’m not usually a big jewelry person (you could probably count the number of earrings I own on one hand) but I fell in love with these from the moment I saw them. Every little detail, from the swirl of frosting atop the cupcakes, to the golden-brown edges on the chocolate chip cookies, told me that these were the earrings for me.

Every time I stopped by the bakery, I’d gaze longingly at the display, trying to resist buying all of them, but not being able to choose just one pair. I’d hem and haw, pretending that I couldn’t decide what type of bread I wanted, until finally one day the cashier told me that the woman who makes them worked right there in the bakery.

A few days later, I found myself sitting down to a cup of coffee and a (real, edible) cookie with Emily Schinske, the baker and artist behind A Baker’s Creations. And you know what? She is exactly as awesome as you would expect a baker / tiny food earring maker to be. (Okay, that’s REALLY awesome, for those of you who aren’t sure. She even surprised me with a pair of wee little sushi earrings (!) when she heard how much I love sushi. My favorite food in tiny, wearable form? Yes please!)

She calls her jewelry a “calorie-free indulgence,” and I couldn’t agree more with that description. Besides the obvious fun factor, there’s something strangely soul satisfying about wearing your favorite eats in miniature form. I know that sounds weird, but I am 100% serious. Soul satisfying.

We must have chatted for well over an hour, and just when I thought Emily had reached her peak level of awesome, she offered to make a pair of earrings for me to give away to one of you here on the blog — yes, you!

Now you can have your cake, and wear it, too!

Can you even believe the detail in those berries on top? I almost don’t want to part with them, but I will, because I love you just that much. Just use the rafflecopter below, and you’ll be entered for a chance to win this pair of berry cake slice earrings. When the giveaway ends, one winner will be selected at random and I will contact them for their shipping information. Then these earrings will be headed your way!

(And for anyone interested in any of Emily’s other jewelry (or want to get a custom piece!) you can find her at her Etsy store, here: A Baker’s Creations — I know what I’m getting people for Christmas!)

After our first get together, Emily invited me over for a behind-the-scenes peak inside her studio, where I got to see her make these very earrings. Even now that I’ve seen her in action, I’m still not sure how she does it. (While I was there she offered me a hunk of clay, and with a little help and a few pointers I was able to make an awkward, lopsided pair of tacos. It’s safe to say I’ve got a long way to go before I master the art of tiny foodery.)

“My passion really lies in cake decorating.” Emily says, “I can’t even articulate how fulfilling it is to decorate a cake and then eat it, and in a way that includes doing the miniature work, too. People just light up when they see them, and that is really rewarding.”

While cake slices, cupcakes, and cookies may be her jewelry-making staples, Emily is constantly coming up with new ideas. Recent additions to her etsy shop include bacon and egg earrings, wee cups of cocoa, and melty little grilled cheese sandwiches. “I especially enjoy doing custom orders,” she tells me. “One woman wanted a cake necklace, with two slices taken out of it and made into matching earrings. That was really fun!”

S’mores earrings

 

Now, whenever I stop by the bakery, I beeline over to see what new creations are hanging from the rack. The realism of the things she’s able to make from just polymer clay constantly amazes me (like waffles glazed in syrup, and fluffy popcorn kernels). I never thought I would get so much enjoyment from food that can’t be eaten, but there you have it.

If you could pick a favorite food item and make it wearable, what would it be? Let me know in the comments below, and don’t forget to use the rafflecopter to enter the giveaway! I’ll be contacting the winner on December 24th, so keep your eye out for a message in your inbox.

Happy holidays!

  6. ines oliveira December 17, 2014 at 7:36 pm #

    OMG these are sooooooo cute <3 (sorry but i cannot contain my excitement!) i think i've just fallen in love!! did i enter the giveaway correctly!?

    I wish these lovely treates came in matching necklace and rings too! can one buy them somewhere online? what a great giveaway Willow!

    The cake slice is my favourite so far, but i would definitely love to see some christmas-themed ones – why not a slice of christmas log? ;) I also support the idea of having sushi ones, but I think it's so much more fulfilling to sport candy ^^ fruit kebabs would also look delicious and colorful!

    have a nice weekend,
    ines

      Thanks, Ines! Aren’t they great? And I agree, it is so much fun to wear dessert! a christmas log and fruit kebabs are great suggestions, too. :)

      I’m not seeing your name show up in the giveaway entries, so be sure to use the rafflecopter widget (near the middle of the blog post) to enter. (It will ask you to log in, then just select whatever entry options you want and follow the instructions.)

    I want these earrings something bad. They’re so cute. The attention to detail is unbelievable. Yup, I’d want every pair, too. I’m going to say donuts since they’re my favorite food group.
