Como agua para chocolate

The new Theme of the EST challenge is let you inspire by your favorite book,
this topic was chosen by Bee of Bonnieboon, go check her gorgeous shop!.

Well, my all time favorite is Como Agua para Chocolate of Mexican novelist Laura Esquival: , it's translated as: Like water for chocolate.

The novel follows the story of a young girl named Tita who longs her entire life for her lover, Pedro, but can never have him because of her domineering mother's traditional belief that the youngest daughter must not marry but take care of her mother until the day she dies.

Tita is only able to express her passions and feelings through her cooking, which causes the people who taste it to experience what she feels.
I am a big fan of magical realism which is typical for this novel.
Magic realism, or magical realism, is an artistic genre in which magical elements or illogical scenarios appear in an otherwise realistic or even "normal" setting.

Inspired by this magical story about passion,
I tried to make a necklace with the color of dark chocolate and a passionate red colored corozo rose. Yhese two warm and yummie colors inspired me to make other creations and I feel like making a whole colelction of them....
They are available in my Etsy shop!
You can find the other entrys for this challenge in Bee's blog.
