Food jewelry, tattoos, accessories, etc. What cha got?

Recently, a friend gave my husband, a lover of all things bacon, a bacon ring (it doesn't fit him, but I put it on and snapped the pic below). It got me thinking about all the food tattoos I see on chefs and the food jewelry I see at the farmers market (broccoli earrings anyone?) and I just wondered what Chowhounds have seen or worn and what y'all have to say about it. My husband also has several I <3 Bacon t-shirts and an I <3 Cheese tee too. He got them from a dude in nyc, here's the link: http://www.chane.com/shop/

Do you have any odd foodwear, food jewelry or tattoos?

        I know. I have no idea where he came up with it but it caught on among our friends. I heard our guy friends calling their ladies that more than once.

    2. An Etsy seller makes this funky food earrings (dangle and studs) and necklaces out of polymer that are foods and food related pieces. They are small but I love them. Given gifts many times. The california roll studs are my current fav.

        HillJ, I need those earrings in my life. I just may order them. Thanks for the link!

            i'm really pleased with the workmanship, the earrings are super light and at that price a fun buy.

            Love these! I just ordered the eggplant earrings.

                the last order I placed was the bacon & eggs but cufflinks for a tailored shirt I wear. I'm still eyeballing those pickle studs...

          3. My mussel earring has proved to be a good conversation starter.

              LOVE those small h... and they reminded me that I have chili pepper earrings!

                Are you sure that's a pepper? It looks like a shark tooth! I had a clam earring, too, but I lost it (sad face).

                1. re: small h

                  Oh yea, it's a pepper, but it's an abstract pepper. ;)

                2. re: lynnlato

                  OMG! I have those earrings. From Marc Williams in Williamsport, PA right?

              2. T-shirs of course
                little forks earrings
                sushi ring

                  I forgot my spoon ring. I have had it for decades. Thanks for the reminder

                2. I have a wind chime made out of antique silverware.

                  I still wear my 1970's spoon ring.

                  Someone gives me some kind of food/cooking related xmas ornament every year. I could probably do separate tree with just those!

                  I often sport bacon bandaids and we have bacon pillow cases

                  As I posted before my husband collects food/restaurant related t-shirts

                  I have ice cream cone earrings with a matching pin (got loves presents from little girls!)

                  I have trivets made out of wine corks

                  I have a lamp made out a mateus wine bottle (don't ask!)

                  I have a cheese plate made out of dom perignon champagne bottle (thank you secret santa, LOL)

                  I am sure I will think of more!

                    Bacon pillow cases? Do the emit the smell of smoky bacon too? ;) I always thought they should make bacon scented candles and air fresheners. Surely they would sell.
