We're totally smitten with this recent article about "air plant" jewelry in the online edition of Montpelier's local Bridge newspaper. Profiling Central Vermont jeweler and grower Lora Stridsburg, the Bridge writes that Lora was introduced to air plants when she attended a Harry Potter festival. She recalled, “I took home an air plant from a vendor there, and in doing research on how to care for the plant I brought home, I discovered some pieces of air plant jewelry for sale. As someone who makes various kinds of jewelry, crafts, and art, I thought it would be fun to try to make some myself.”
The Bridge reports that while Stridsburg doesn’t yet sell her air plant jewelry, she's willing to make pieces on a commission. She has also mentioned that she would be interested in teaching paid classes about how to make air plant jewelry.
