Carry a Tiny Garden Around Your Neck With 3D Printing

Rebecca OConnell

Wearable Planter is a Georgia design studio that makes tiny vases that let you bring your plants everywhere. Created by Colleen Jordan, these impossibly tiny gardens come as rings, necklaces, and other fun accessories. The pieces are meant to make life more pleasant; Jordan's inspiration comes from the many places she's lived: Louisiana, Hawaii, South Carolina, Georgia, New Jersey, and Sweden.

Thanks to 3D printing, the pieces can be complex despite their small size. They are printed with nylon, painted with bright colors, and then finished with acrylic varnish. Most come with a flat bottom so you can place your planter on a desk when you're not wearing it. If you're wondering how you would be able to keep your new accessory alive, the website includes a helpful planting guide for those who lack a green thumb.

Jordan sells these gorgeous plants on her Etsy, and you can see more pictures on her Instagram.
