Artisans who make live plant jewelry tend to use tiny terrariums or vases. But Michigan based Susan McLeary does something very innovative. She "plants" live succulents onto jewelry findings and bases! Her unique bridal jewelry can be seen on her Etsy, PassionflowerMade.
Later on, she needed to send her floral jewelry at a photographer's request across the country. So Susan "had to figure out how to make beautiful floral jewelry that would survive." Succulents were the solution. The live succulent jewelry collection she now sells are all low maintenance and can be easily shipped.
They are designed to be worn for about 2-4 weeks after which the plants can be potted. What a memorable way to remember a special occasion!
