What it is
This designer, Hafsteinn, Juliusson, was inspired by the fact that green areas and nature in the cities is very wanted but not everywhere to each his disposal. His small solution for this big problem is very innovative, beautiful and even cute. He made gardens wearable by designing rings etc. with small gardens in it. His line is actually called ‘Growing jewelry’ so it even lives while you are carrying it around the city. It only needs watering every five weeks for growing so you don’t even really have to take care of it because it largely takes care of its own. 

Why I think it is cool
Who wouldn’t wear this?? Every urban nomad looks for the perfect balance between green, sustainable and the city. With this around your finger, hand or neck, your own green spot is always with you. It doesn’t need a lot of attention so you can be busy like every urban nomad is. Maybe this is a precursor for carrying your own garden with you in a small bag or something. You can always feel connected with nature and also do your own thing in the city.
