Handcrafted Succulent Necklace

This blog is going to be a short one because there isn’t much I need to say, the picture speaks for itself. I mean, come on… This succulent necklace is just SO STUNNING. The design and details are perfect.

What a unique and chic way to show your appreciation for your maid of honor on your special wedding day. I would love to be gifted a hand crafted succulent necklace – maybe if she has a green thumb she could even get the cut succulents to root and keep them long after the wedding day!

The variety used to cover most of this particular necklace is called known by many names, “string of pearls”, “string of beads plant” or “rosary plant”. The creeping plant grows with the stems trailing on the ground. As the stems touch the ground, it starts rooting where they touch and forming a dense ma. The plant has green bubbles as leaves growing on skinny stems. In winter months, the plant has tiny white flowers with bright colored stamens. People often say the flowers smell like cinnamon.

We recommend growing this in hanging planters, allowing it to cascade down from the edge. Once established, you can easily propagate new plants, or make the original plant look fuller by placing cuttings into the soil and allowing them to take root. Like most succulents, these plants require very little care or maintenance.
