Living Jewelry That Grows On Your Body While You Wear It
Fur is murder, but it’s hard to wear a living thing. Unless it’s stylish jewelry with living succulents, of course! That’s the premise of Passionflower jewelry, sold on their Etsy store. Each of their pieces contains succulents. You can wear the jewelry for 2-4 weeks, after which the plant will start growing out. It’s the sign for you to take it out of the bracelet and whatever, and plant it.
Susan McLeary is the mad genius behind this design. “Before I was a florist, I made jewelry for friends,” she said in an online interview. “When one such friend got married, she asked me to design her wedding flowers in addition to her jewelry. As I had her flowers in my hands, I knew I’d found my medium. One wedding turned into many more, and before I knew it I was working as an event florist. I still adore designing for weddings, but have found that I enjoy creating floral wearables and (not surprisingly) floral jewelry even more.”
