How do you repay the woman who gave you endless encouragement, provided countless meals, sacrificed hundreds of hours of sleep, put a roof over your head, and stood cheering in oppressive heat or laughable rainstorms for an unforgivable number of soccer tournaments? With a necklace made of stale pasta and string, obviously.
Of course I realize now I can never really repay my mother’s love. Not with any jewelry. But I do think she’ll love this gorgeous throwback Porcelain Macaroni Necklace that we spotted at Food 52.
Cue the nostalgia.

I think this clever macaroni necklace delivers instant Mother’s Day charm in the way I always hoped my handcrafted ones would. Though what it lacks in those lovely imperfections of the traditional one, it makes up for in years more of potential wearability.
The Porcelain Macaroni Necklace is available with a copper or gold chain and can be found at Provisions by Food 52. Order soon to receive by Mother’s Day!
