Jewelry: Still Not Edible, But Close
Marisa Reisel must have pretty nimble fingers. Her sashimi platter earrings would fit on Thumbelina's dinner table. Or inside Barbie's fridge. Her food-centric jewelry pendants, part of her Whole Slice Jewelry business, are no bigger than a cashew or quarter, but that doesn't quench the creative factor. California-like sushi rolls, meant for a chain necklace, are served on a "wooden" slab with pickled ginger and a wasabi scoop.
The recent Princeton grad now works and paints in San Francisco, crafting these fun miniatures on the side. She just unveiled the project's website, sure to make anyone smile. An eclectic jewelry menu ranges from taqueria (taco and hot sauce earrings) to grocery produce section (store-bought veggie platter with carrot section missing) to Popeyes drive-thru (drumsticks and biscuits).
Reisel gladly takes personal requests. Most iconic pairs are already accounted for (cookies and milk, mac and cheese, burger and fries) but let's throw out some suggestions. Mozzarella and basil earrings? A dill pickle charm? Support her adorable cause by ordering her inedible take-out.
