Pizza Party

Pizza Party

I now finally have an excuse to post my favourite Olsen twins-related thing ever.  Gimme PIZZA!  I like to watch this video every now and again and try to reconcile the faces of these twin munchkins slathering strange ingredients on to pizzas and their ¬£29,000 alligator backpacks from The Row, as well as entertaining the possibility that pizza topped with Chinese food could potentially be a good thing.  

Melbourne-based jewellery designer Lucy Folk has long been injecting her foodie presence in the jewellery world – taco chips, sushi rice grains, sunflower seeds, orange slices – anything that can be dehydrated and cast into metal shapes is a possible inspiration source.  For her latest collection, Folk turns to pizza and the ingredients that go into making the perfect slice.  Anchovies, slices of mushroom, olive pips and parsley are cast in oxidised blackened silver, silver and gold. Pepperoni earrings glint with glass baguettes, opal and cubic zirconia hinting at the globules of yum yum fat that make up my personal all-time pizza topping face.  Strands of mozzarella are knotted into gold rings and earrings.  Chef of Melbourne pizza restaurant Mr Wolf, Karen Martini was called in for a "dough throw" session, where strands of the yeasty carby goodness were cast into necklaces or crocheted into dough-ball esque formations.  Her signature friendship bracelets are now anchored by triangular pizza slices or anchovy slivers and her powder coated steel chains reflect the saucy reds of a pizza ingredient palette.  For the final piece de resistance, together with local crochet artist Rochelle King, they cook up two pizza collars – margherita for the purists and pepperoni for the meat lovers – which fortunately won't break down into a sloppy mess if you attempt a few pizza throws in the air.

What I'm itching to do of course is to don a ton of this for a real pizza party a la Olsens.  Folk wisely chose Pizza Pilgrims as her favoured London pizza suppliers (she sent out a pizza as an actual invitation to her London press day) but obviously Maletti's or Franco Manca pizzas are also contenders for providing molto tasty pizza action at my hypothetical pizza party.  Chocolate sauce and whipped cream are of course non-optional.  If only so that I can rap "Whipped cream pouring like WATERFALLS!"

    That pizza looks really awful. The cream and Ice cream would TOTALLY melt, and the already fried chicken would dry the hell out. Not to mention a full raw fish – I bet it wasn’t even gutted – lazy Olsens. I don’t think they really thought those ingredients through.
    Although I remember having ice cream on pizza, only because the ninja turtles did it – but you should really put it on after the pizza is cooked, AND you gotta eat that thing fast – otherwise you might as well pour milk on your pizza.
    More food posts please!

    I love that the mushroom earrings look so dirty, it turns them into an edgy piece rather than something kitschy. Not that kitsch is bad…see for example Fong’s Pizza in Des Moines, Iowa ( I can vouch for the Crab Rangoon pizza. Indeed, Chinese food on pizza and a Very cool joint

    hmmm, not sure I want to go around with a pizza around my neck or some mushrooms

    Why not look at a more balanced and mixed blog where you can find fashion, interiors and food! And with the knowledge I have from having worked in this business forover 30 years (from fashionstylist and journalist to interior designer and now writing trend reports for The Swedish Fashion Council (about not only fashion but interiors, food, cityguides and lifestyle) visit
