Wearable Planter on Thingiverse: print your own wearable planter!
I’m opening up some of my older wearable planters for everyone in the world to print at home on their 3D printer (everyone has their own 3D printer, right?!). Download them from Thingiverse.
If you follow along my other social media outlets, you’ll know that my company Wearable Planter got to display at the New York International Gift Fair last week. NYIGF is an event held twice during the year that gives designers, companies, manufacturers, and retailers all the chance to connect to bring products to stores.
I was invited to join as part of Model Citizens, a group I worked with last year as part of an ICFF Satellite show. In all, we represented 14 different independent designers and firms at this event. We managed to pull together a great group, including furniture makers, a helmet painter, tee shirt printers, ceramicists, jewelry designers, and more. With almost no budget and limited space, we managed to pull off a show that went better than
For my part of the display, I wanted to showcase both my jewelry collection as well as some of my new bike planters. I worked with Danielle Baskin of Belle helmets to put together our corner of the display. We managed to find a great bike frame at the last minute to display our products and create more visual interest.
At the end of the day, the event ended up going better than expected. Besides for getting to spend time and work with great designers, I got the chance to connect with some great business owners and bloggers! Can’t wait to spend time with the Model Citizens again in May!

If you’ll be in Atlanta December 1st, come check out the West Elm + Etsy Holiday workshop. One of my favorite Atlanta artists (whom I’ve yet to meet), Corduroy, whose Honey Badger mugs I love will be there. And Mary Rebecca will be showing people who stop by how to make fun ornaments.
I’ll be there selling my wearable planters, and this is a great opportunity for y'all to pick up some local handmade gifties for holiday gifts.
See y'all there!
Exciting announcement from the shop here! My wearable planters have found two new homes for the holiday season! If you want to take a little weekend trip to one of the most interesting cities in Tennessee, check out Homespun, a charming little store and meeting space in Chattanooga. They’ll have a curated selection of my wearable planters in stock. For Atlantans, my wearable planters will also be at Criminal Records in L5P as part of the Indie Craft Pop-Up Shop.
Been working on some new pieces in my wearable planter series. Bringing in some new colors and materials, as well as new ways to wear some current pieces.
One thing that I’ve been playing around with lately is dying my printed pieces. Nylon can be dyed really well, and it produces some really great colors. Also, I’ve been more fascinated by air plants lately, and have been playing around with ways to carry them.
They’ll all be available soon in my etsy shop.
