Giveaway of French Bakery Macaron Jewellery on Mad About Macarons!

I was goofing around one day. Finding a ring with no jewel, I tried to photograph this homemade mini mac perched on top of it.  The idea was fun but using real macarons that could change colour and flavour daily was a mad, tall order, don’t you think?

Patricia Bourdel, from A French Bakery came up with the answer with her wonderful macaron jewellery.  They look so real, don’t they?

What’s more, there’s a different colour of macaron for every day of the week. Now you can ring your friends to come around for tea and macarons (sorry, can never resist a pun.)

Tea and macaron pendants are ever so minuscule and oh, so fun!  I personally adore these macaron earrings…

Put them together and you have a stunning result. There’s even more at the French Bakery for that macaron look, s’il vous plaît.

Update 20 September:

Sorry, this Giveaway is now closed.
