Exquisite Terrarium Necklaces Let You Carry Miniature Nature Scenes with You Everywhere

Irish designer Khrystyna Marriott searches high and low for beautiful curiosities to include in her whimsical jewelry. She hand picks delicate components from a variety of locales, including the sides of mountains and windswept beaches. Raw minerals, dried flower buds, feathers, and dandelion seeds are part of her chosen materials which are then dried, arranged, and placed in antique-style vessels. The results are exquisite miniature terrariums that dangle around your neck.

Marriott's accessories keep the outside world close to your heart. “My hand-crafted jewelry is designed to allow the quiet beauty of nature to shine,” she writes, “to stir the imagination and encapsulate a microcosm of long forgotten memories.”

All of these tiny terrariums are now for sale in Marriott's Etsy shop called Ruby Robin Boutique.
