The only bummer about fresh flowers is that they’re fleeting. But there’s not a moment of gloom with these blooms. Kyla’s pressed flower designs bring you closer to nature, literally, in the form of jewelry. Using locally grown flowers and leaves—some from her own garden—she preserves them in a wooden flower press for four weeks, seals them in whisper-thin plastic and fashions them into one-of-a-kind accessories. Unlike some pressed flower jewelry that’s often set in resin, which can be heavy and environmentally toxic, Kyla’s jewelry is light and airy. So much so that you can feel the intricate textures of the petals and leaves right through the plastic. And true to nature, each piece is biologically different from the next, so no two are alike.
