Kale craze or not, candy's still king.  In songs, ("Lollipop", "I Want Candy,"), games (Candy Land (back in vintage form at your local Target!), Candy Crush), movies (Candyman, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (each scary in its own way)), and fashion (Candie's, Hard Candy).  And that goes double for holidays.  No self-respecting calendar star gets street cred without sugar.  Valentine's Day, Easter, Halloween, and Christmas all owe at least some of their magic to candy's syrupy goodness; (no Godiva for you, St. Pat's, but then again you've always got Guinness).  

So, it's no stretch to say that this week's necklaces celebrate saccharine style.  I especially love the centerpiece oval pendants, which I found on Etsy's own MK Supplies.  Probably because they're lemony, orangey, and minty, like frosted white chocolate or fruity hard candy.

Let's make that hard candy.  White chocolate is icky.
