Fancy Candy Jewelry + Sugarfina Giveaway

Candy Jewelry for Grown Ups | With Lovely

I may be in my mid-twenties, but I love candy as much now as I did when I was five. My tastes are a bit more discerning, though, so I was thrilled to discover Sugarfina, a boutique candy company that curates a collection of high-quality confections just for grown ups (like Champagne Gummy Bears—cheers!).

Sugarfina’s candies are not only delicious, but also really, really pretty. So pretty, that I wanted to wear them like gems. Hey, if candy has grown up, it’s high time that candy jewelry gets an update too!

Want to make your own? Enter below to win a Sugarfina Mini Bento Box and read on for the tutorials! Just want to gobble them up? That’s okay too, I won’t judge.

You can choose four types of candy for your Mini Bento Box. My recommendations? Sugar LipsChampagne BearsArtisan Gummy Bears, and Queen of Hearts gummies. I love gummy candies and these are especially tasty, plus the gummies are by far the easiest to string (especially the non-sour ones). Sugarfina’s Confetti Dolci is also pretty dreamy!
