Grass Knuckles & Pussy Willow

by jennine on September 17, 2008

Ever since I was a little girl and made a daisy chain with clover flowers during recess, I’ve been captivated by wearing plants as jewelry. The lovely folks over at Inhabitat brought my attention to Icelandic product designer Hafsteinn Juliusson’s set of jewelry set with Icelandic moss you can grow on your own hands. I’m wondering if this is the beginning of the Green Thug movement.

Pussy Willow

If gardening isn’t really your thing, or you have a tendency to kill plastic plants, you might be interested in Stephanie Simek’s Pussy Willow Earrings. Pussy Willow buds soft as rabbit’s feet are set in oxidized silver ‘like silent wind chimes’… ah, my favorite kind of wind chimes.

I adore pussy willows! May need to get these and I rarely wear earrings. I’d love them as a pendant maybe.

Hmmmm…

I’m really loving those rings. What a great idea! Will wearing one help lower my carbon footprint?

Wow those earrings are gorgeous! I’d seen the rings before and thought they were cool but those earrings are so much better! And more wearable!

As soon as the latest R &/or B singer/rapper (whatever, I listen to rock) starts sporting ‘em it will go global. As for me, well, I couldn’t keep my basil alive so I have no hope.

I want one of those moss rings so badly! Can’t find one to buy on the internet anywhere, though, sigh. They only seem to be in the gallery.

But they are soooooo beautiful…
