1. Meet Susan McLeary, a 41-year-old florist and jewelry designer based in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
McLeary got into floral work when a frazzled friend needed help with flowers for her wedding. “Once I started working with flowers, I knew I’d found my medium,” she told BuzzFeed.
3. How it works: McLeary trims succulent roots and secures them to jewelry using plant-safe floral glue.
The result: Stunning special occasion alternatives to traditional jewelry.
4. The succulents typically last between 1 and 3 weeks.
“Some people will wear them up to 6 weeks,” she said. At that point, the succulents will start sprouting small roots.
5. Once the succulents start to sprout, you can peel them off of the jewelry and plant them.
“I suggest lightly sanding the areas of the jewelry where the adhesive was to fully remove it,” McLeary said. You’ll be left with minimalist brass jewelry and a newfound garden.
6. “It’s a great alternative to a corsage because the plants can find a place in your home,” McLeary said.
People can customize the jewelry depending on whether they’d like to stay within a certain shade of green or if they’d like pops of color. “Sometimes I’ll add small purple succulents,” she said.
