Christophe Roussel has created an updated version of the candy necklace. The macaroon necklace seems absolutely irresistible, and is sure to provide people with a sweet tooth and a tasty treat in the afternoon.

Although it doesn’t look very appealing, the red and yellow balls consist of completely edible macaroon chunks.

Implications - The global recession caused collective feelings of despair, gloom and general despondency. In response, many artists and designers have channeled the carefree spirit of childhood, updating classic childlike items with adult sensibilities to inspire nostalgia. In this example, Chrisophe Roussel adopted the classic candy necklace for an adult's refined palate, swapping out sugary candy for delicate French macaroons.
