Glitterlimes: Jewelry made out of Fruit and Candy

I'm still alive! Things have been a bit crazy with the school year winding down, but I am alive and well (my parents always ask me if I'm well and taking care of myself, and I tell them that I am based on the fact that I drink Vitamin Water Zero and sometimes eat salad for lunch.) I've been contributing a lot of video stories recently for The Brooklyn Ink, and thought I would share one about this really cool jewelry designer I met a few weeks ago.

Debbie Tuch created Glitterlimes jewelry 17 years ago when she was studying at the Rhode Island School of Design. Today, she scours the globe for interesting fruits and candy to turn into jewelry in her Greenpoint, Brooklyn studio. She uses everything from nuts and crackers to candies and fruit — every piece she makes was originally edible (and while shooting, we ate a lot of her materials that were still edible.) 

Her signature piece is called a Glitterlime: a dried, preserved lime that is coated in glitter resin and made into a pendant or a brooch.
