Icelandic product designer, Hafsteinn Juliusson, and Atlanta indie designer, Colleen Jordan, have been taking going green to a whole new level with "grow jewelry." The pieces are not only creative, but they are well designed. There's nothing worse than a good idea executed poorly. Both designers use clean lines and geometric shapes in their work. Perhaps the only downside is that they do require some maintenance. Good thing Haf provides easy-to-use directions and a mini green house to help preserve the live jewels. These pieces are definitely not for the introvert because they will surely provoke conversation. Sure they're not for everyone, but grow jewels have major COOL factor and only a fearless trendsetter could pull this off with grace.
