We harvest clippings of this plant and cast them in sterling silver. The result is more intricate than I could ever carve. They are a little over 1/2 inch long, and make a woven vertical line when worn.  

  • Sterling Silver
  • 1/2 inch long 1/8 inch wide
  • Ships in 1 - 2 days

This funky succulent grows like a tall thick grass and has been called a zipper plant, a rattail succulent, watch chain and lizard's tail- all to describe it's interlacing 4 leaf braid formation. I'm excited to see what it looks like in spring, when flowers start to poke through those braids.
