Vintage-Inspired Terrarium Jewelry Keeps a Piece of Nature Close to Your Heart

You might be stuck at a desk all day, but thanks to MARIAELA jewelry, you can always be close to the outdoors. Ela Rymkowska-Turkoniak is the brainchild behind the online shop that sells stunning terrarium-style jewelry. The striking pendant necklaces feature pieces of dried, hand-picked leaves and flowers that are encased in exquisite magnifying-like glasses, offering fantastical way of seeing the world.

To construct the romantic accessories, MARIAELA uses techniques that have stood the test of time. The metal and glass jewelry are joined with the famous Tiffany (lamp) method and have a vintage aesthetic. This distressed appearance works with any flower—from something as simple as a dandelion seed to a bloom that’s as bright and colorful as a pink daisy.

MARIAELA stocks all of their jewelry through Etsy.
