Sweet Jewellery

 

Updated : Apr 24, 2009

VeryHappyPig remembers with fondness and consumed with great regularity the necklaces and watches made from sweets years ago.

How ingenious food with a dual purpose, granted it wasn’t quiet bling bling but you could eat it! Now it seems an Indian student seems to have drawn inspiration for the sweet and come up with another quiet ingenious idea.

A student at one of India’s top colleges has designed jewellery for diabetics that is edible in an emergency.

Asif Kureshi, who studies at the National Institute of Design, makes gems that are literally good enough to eat. He is targeting markets from people faced with sugar levels that drop quickly to little children with a sweet tooth and pregnant women craving for a snack.

“When I met doctors during my research, they shared with me that diabetics suffer from sudden drops in sugar levels and need 10-12 grams of sugar instantly,” he told the Times of India.

Mr Kureshi’s jewellery is designed to be eaten or has compartments in which a small amount of food can be stored.

“The jewellery that I am in the process of designing or creating can be in gold, silver or any semi-precious metal,” he said.

“The range will have pendants, rings, bracelets and key chains. These accessories will have moulded sugar candies (sweets) in the form of beads or other shapes.”

Mr Kureshi added that sugar would replace diamonds in his jewellery range.

“I am also working on storing sugar, honey and even chocolate in the jewellery. They will be laminated in plastic or wrapped in silver and gold foils. This could also be developed into jewellery for children and pregnant women,” he added.
