Real Fruit Jewelry

By on Tuesday, June 26, 2012 6 Comments

I've written about amazing food inspired jewelry before but really nothing about the real thing until now.  Zoe the Philadelphian behind Real Fruit Jewelry on Etsy, dishes up slices of colorful fruit to wear.

Imagine! The source of her raw materials is indeed the grocery store. Zoe combines her real fruit slices with resin and sometimes glass thus making the final products durable.

She said, " I've always loved the fresh beauty of nature, and I loved taking pictures of fresh produce at local farmer's markets too." So when she lost her job in 2010, she decided to experiment and combine her long standing love of jewelry with fruit. "Luckily, it caught on and I didn't have to find another job...just fruit jewelry making!" You couldn't ask for a better outcome from an experiment!

Zoe adds, "I am inspired by the bright colors and organic feminine shapes that the jewelry takes on." She has expanded her repetoire to include other food stuff so be sure to have a stroll down this innovative designer's fresh produce "aisle"!!
