Sweet Treats

My good friend, Brie, loves to craft just as much as I do.  So, when I went to my local bead shop to purchase a birthday gift certificate for her, I found some really fun food charms that I knew my (also foodie) friend would love.  She has acquired quite the reputation among the local firemen for making tasty pies (she's also an old soul, like me).  So, how appropriate is this pie necklace?!  I couldn't pass it up.  But one is just not enough... I thought I'd stick with the food theme and allow her to layer on the sweet treats.  And instead of a silver chain, I looped the charms on summer colored silk threads and easily tied each end on a lobster claw clasp and jump ring closure.

So, when she opens up her little pastry box tonight, she won't find anything edible, but something just as sweet... that will last much longer.

I had so much fun with this little project, I might just see an Etsy shop in my future.  What do you think, should I go for it?
