Covet Mondays: Growing Jewelry

One of the blogs I love to follow is Earth Friendly Weddings. Since we strive to be eco-conscious in all we do here at Bella Signature Design, and have recently created a environmentally friendly/organic section of our company, we love to learn from those who are already fabulous at putting on amazing events with less of a a carbon footprint than necessary. Earth Friendly Weddings has one of th ebest blogs for great eco-conscious wedding and event ideas! Although I don't usually post about items I have just seen on another blog, I just loved this piece by designer Hafsteinn Juliusson - and I can only COVET it because it's not currently for sale - sigh.

Although here at Bella we have made some fantastic floral bracelets and necklaces out of wire and orchids, I've never seen an actual "growing" piece of jewelry - the concept of combining couture jewelery and organic nature is what I adore about this (and of course, the fact that the moss is my favorite color of chartreuse helps too). True innovation, and while some on his site commented that it was not practical; I say art has no need for practicality - art should make you think or feel, that's it.
Now the men's piece is decidedly a bit bold, but the women's piece? I would definitely wear that ring! How fun, what a great conversation starter and statement...can't you just see it on bridesmaids as a 'green' wedding?

Currently on display at the Reykjavik Art Museum in Iceland.
