These real flower jewelry pieces made by Susan McLeary are one-of-a-kind and eco-friendly. Emitting natural fresh flower fragrances upon wear, the striking botanical bracelets, necklaces and rings are made out of "long-living succulents."

Each custom-made piece, which is sold through McLeary's Etsy shop 'PassionFlower,' can remain fashionably fresh for 3-4 weeks. Once the florals start to wilt, they can be rooted and turned into a potted plant or become a new feature in your outdoor garden.

The jewelry comes with instructions for those who don't have a green thumb. The instructions will show you how to salvage the blooms by gently removing them from their bronze bases. Each base can also be returned to Passionflower for a re-design at any time, but of course with an extra charge.
