Wearable Planters

A Wearable Planter, No. 1

A Wearable Planter, No. 3

A Wearable Planter, No. 2

Why should your plants stay at home? That's what Atlanta-based Colleen Jordan asked and why she subsequently designed these adorable wearable planters! Carry a sprout, a succulent, or a flower you found on your morning walk.

so cute

Rachael said...

Oh wow, how could a sweet little sprout/herb/plant inspire so many negative comments? What does practical have to do with it? It's not like you sleep, shower, and go jogging with the thing on. It's a necklace!

It's absolutely vibrant! I love it. :)

flutter said...

LOL this is so cool. Not my cuppa tea. It reminds me of a girl I knew. When we were younger she was conviced that putting eggs in her bra's would make them hatch.. It's like gardening round your neck isn't it.. I am so going to share this in my next blog post.. It's wild, bizarre and absolutely so much fun.. I would wear one, maybe not doing something dramatic like mountain climbing, but I am sure i could find the right occassion to fit it in.

Yep thumbs up from me!

Anonymous said...

I have to agree with Rachael above me.. it's not like you'd wear it to sleep or to go swimming! I think it's an adorable, unique idea to wear on occasion and hang in front of your kitchen window when not on your person. :)

I'm always babbling on about the awesomeness of jewelry containing plants, but these necklaces are perfect examples of what living jewelry should look like!

HeArt Collective said...

i'm pretty sure if i could put my sprig of lavender in it i'd be the happiest silly girl in town...

lesley [smidgebox] said...

reading the comments brought almost as big of a smile as the post itself! you're right, jan, if we all liked the same things, the world would be incredibly dull.

i personally think these are awesome. and i know i'd feel a lot less guilty killing a teensy mini plant in a pendant than i do when i kill the nice big plants in my house :P

Sarah K said...

I'm just not sure about it. BUT I can totally see some starlet rocking this and starting a new craze. It certainly is a unique and interesting idea!

jan said...

Fun to read all these comments - and Lesley - so true - I'm not much of a green thumb either.

Cool stuff art gallery said...

I think there very cool!

Molly said...

As soon as I saw these posted yesterday, I sent the link to my mom and sister - both big gardeners. They loved them. It surprises me that people think they are dumb, but I get that it's not everyone's cup of tea. They would definitely be a conversation starter!

Layers and Layers said...

two words: hippy dippy. creative? yes. silly? yes. Would i wear it? NO!

jan said...

Molly - that's funny! Like i said on twitter - I think these would be perfect to wear to a garden party!
: )

Caitlin said...

I think they're lovely. I've always found the old fashioned vase pins made to hold a tiny flower charming, and I love how this is a modern update to the concept.

Keri said...

Whenever I'm trying to grow a plant I usually end up with fruit flies or a small worm....that wouldn't be so cute around my neck! ewwww!!

noona said...

innovative :D, love the idea

Anonymous said...
