So, I've mentioned my clay miniatures before. These are the miniature foods I make out of sculpy, with the scale being such that a "large" four layer cake will sit on a plate about the size of a quarter. Well, now I'm working on creating a rather large stash, with a good variety of clay miniatures and devil/satyr horns, with plans to see about getting a table at the artist's alley at Genericon with a friend.
The thing is, that on top of just plain miniatures, I've started making them into earrings and necklaces. And I need suggestions.

As examples, some of what I've made or have plans to make so far:
Dangly earrings and necklaces.
Sushi platters:
Dangly earrings and necklaces (this is one of the wood rectangular platters, with the proper feet, with a set of two nigiri, 4-6 pieces of a sushi roll, wasabi and pickled ginger included)
Stud earrings, and possibly dangly earrings and necklaces
Slices of cake:
Probably dangly earrings and necklaces
Miso soup and Sake:
This would be a set of dangly earrings where one is a bowl of miso soup and the other is the sake bottle with a little sake cup, also available as sets of soup or sets of sake
Possibilities I'm still trying to figure out if they will work:
pieces of pie, certain types of cookies, napoleons.

So, yeah. I need more ideas, especially for stud earrings. So, help? Please?
Suggestions that I like and manage to make work will probably result in receiving a version of your idea made into a necklace, dangly earrings, or stud earrings (your choice) as thanks!

Many of these might be made into barrettes, cufflinks, or brooches/pins as well. I think cupcake cufflinks would be awesome.

But might I suggest wasabi bean studs? How about moon pies? Dim Sum style bean paste buns? (trying to keep with the themes of the foods you've already got.)

I had intended to do knitting placeholders, and have been thinking about barrettes, I hadn't thought of cufflinks. I like the idea.
As for Wasabi beans, I think those would be too small and not distinctive enough. I'll totally have to look at pics of the other two to see.

I think I might be able to make dim sum work really well. Once I figure out for a fact, if it works, I'll get back to you.

Please tell me you mean actual moon pie-sandwich cake thing.

Though moon cakes (either round kind that are white with red dot on top or yellow stamped kind) would be tasty, and OMG I can see a line of black and white cookie things selling well.

I think that badge pins are good.

A friend of mine has the habit of wearing asymmetrical earrings. She has a blue bird she likes to wear in one ear and two studs in the other. I thought the studs were the "eggs" because they were the right blue. Maybe you can do something with this concept
