Zipper Bar Studs
(Crassula muscosa)

42.00

The Zipper Plant, with yellow-green stems of braided leaves, grows toward the sky in undulating curves. This species is also known as lizard’s tail, watch chain, or simply ‘rattail succulent’, and is native to South Africa and Namibia.

Small samples are clipped from the grassy clusters, molded, and cast in sterling silver. The result is a set of ½ inch long bar studs.

  • Sterling silver

  • ½” long, ⅛” wide

  • One-of-a-kind plant casting

  • Ships in 1-2 days

Plant castings are a one-of-a-kind molds made from the living plant. Each braid is “harvested” from our succulents, so that it is a unique replica of a piece of the plant. We keep our plants in rotation. After a few cuttings are plucked from one plant, it goes back in resting mode for a few months before it gets harvested again. Your earrings will be a unique casting very similar to the ones in the photos.
