Plant jewellery grows around you


It looks like pieces and seeds you know from your garden? Exactly...


... look what also you can do using plants for hand made plant jewellery...


..earrings made of chamaecyparissus, seeds of Ligustrum vulgare (Wild Privet, also known as Common Privet or European Privet) and leaves...

...beautiful bracelet made on ribbon...

...decorative apple fruits and leaves of Aristolochia known as birthworts, pipevines or Dutchman's pipes,...


I've spent beautiful Saturday learning how to make it and also sharing some pictures from my garden travels this spring. It was sunny, colorful and cheerful day. Thank you!

Those are beautiful, Ewa! Not sure how long they'd last, but how unique and lovely!

Dear Ewa, they look gorgeous! It's also part of their beauty that we cannot wear them long. The photos and the colour are fine, too.

I've invited you to the garden bloggers' game in my latest post. Hope you'll feel like participating. Eszter

Wow! I don't wear a lot of jewelry but I can't wait to try this! I never thought of intentionally making jewelry out of plant material that wasn't dead/dried. Closest I've come is growing Job's tears.
