Err, so you may have noticed that I am definitely a sucker for anything novelty (the lemon purse kind of adds to it, right?) It all started when I came across The Pommier; an online marketplace with a massive focus on independent makers and emerging creators. I’m all about supporting talented individuals who create their very own designs (how could you not be?!) and the deal was well and truly sealed when I spotted these Pretzel earrings by Poporcelain.
If you’re a long time reader (hi!) you may have spotted that I don’t often sport earrings. They usually make my ears itch, unless they’re made of high quality metal – and yes, these gold plated pretzels do the trick. Plus, I suppose I just don’t care for earrings (please say this in the absolute snootiest voice you can manage). A pair have to be really, really good for me to say yes.
Clearly, these pretzels absolutely ARE THAT GOOD. The second I spotted them I knew I had to have them. Pretzels are ridiculously tasty! And since you don’t come across them terribly often in Thailand, wearing them is definitely the second best option. A little more about the earrings themselves; they’re handcrafted from genuine porcelain, which means everyone is slightly different (how awesome is that?!) The salty sprinkles are made from gold, as well as the rose that holds it in your ear.
I was also massively excited at just how quickly they arrived on my doorstep. I’m not a terribly patient person, and waiting for packages always makes me slightly agitated (Millennials, yo), and these salty things arrived well within the week.
I may not be much a baker, but for now I’m hugely content with wearing tasty treats on my ears.
