How long do they last?

and other frequently asked questions

Q. How long do they last?

A. Olivie jewelry is made with living plants, cut fresh from the garden, and arranged by hand onto each piece. They look their best for a single wear (like a corsage or boutonniere).  Succulent plants have a little more staying power than cut flowers, so if you have a piece with succulents, you may get a little more mileage out of it.  Succulent jewelry can also stay fresh for several days before you wear it, so they are great choices for shipping as a gift or bringing to an out of town event.

Q. How should I take care of my botanical jewelry?

A.  Your Olivie is made with freshly cut plants.  They are alive and don't always behave predictably, but you can keep your jewelry looking its best with a few tips.

  • Be mindful to protect your Olivie from knocks and bumps.  The plants are delicate and can break or bruise.

  • To adjust the size of your ring or bracelet, push or pull on the exposed metal, not the plants

  • If the plants on your piece begin to wilt, try soaking the whole piece in water for 10-15 minutes or spraying it with water.  

Q. What should I do with my Olivie after I wear it?

A.  Olivie jewelry bases are reusable.  You can pull the plants off, and add on new plants.  The bracelet bases can also be worn on their own  Most of our succulent plants will stay alive for a long time on the base.  After you've worn them, you can pull them off and plant them in a small pot by laying them on top of the soil.  They'll root in, and then you can add them to your own garden.
