What a neat idea! Just be careful where you wear these – say, not in the presence of hungry critters.
From Ecouterre’s Jasmin Malik Chua:
Get your daily serving of fruit and vegetables with Margaret Dorfman’s range of edible jewelry. Made from fresh produce, which the California artist cures, presses, ages, and dries into translucent parchment, the cuffs, necklaces, and earrings have a warm enamel-like glow evocative of tinted vellum. To preserve their bright jewel hues, Dorfman fuses the sheets to tarnish-proof copper before glazing them with a nontoxic lacquer finish.
Dorfman composts the leftover scraps and sends unused produce to the local zoo.
Does anyone else feel hungry now?
