'growing jewelry' collection by hafsteinn juliusson

the ‘growing jewelry’ collection

we recently discovered the work of icelandic designer hafsteinn juliusson, who has created the ‘growing jewelry’ collection. combining both jewelry and gardening, the collection is a series of hand rings that contains real icelandic moss. wearers need to take care of their jewelry by frequently watering and trimming it. earlier this year juliusson opened his ‘growing jewelry’ store at reykjavik art museum, where pieces are displayed on sand beds under spotlighted growing lamps.
