in the food world, an amuse bouche is a tiny bite-sized morsel served before the hors d’Å“uvre or first course of a meal. they serve to tickle the taste buds, are representative of the chef’s culinary style and prepare you for the rest of the meal. now, can you imagine what an amuse bouche for would look like in jewelry form? wonder no more!
look at these fabulous amuse bouche rings from california artists jill redman and erin lockwood for their blue poppy jewelry line. they’re made of actual spices (like cloves, cayenne and wasabi on the left side below) that are encased in resin and then inlaid with teeny drops of sterling silver by hand (of course).
beautiful flowing color + organic shapes + fun talking point for your next dinner party = two thumbs up!
they also have spice earrings in an extensive color palette, just in case you’d like to complete your ensemble.
