Cathy Wu’s Dried Fruit Jewelry

Forget Cheerios necklaces and macaroni bracelets.

Artist Cathy Wu has made elaborate looking rings and necklaces out of dried apples, beets, plums, pears and oranges. Wu makes the jewelry by slicing fresh fruits thin, drying the slices and then folding and layering them to create a delicate, rippled fruit bauble. She then places the fruit on a silver band or chain, which she makes by hand as well.

Not only are the rings and necklaces elaborate and beautiful but they are also entirely edible. Wu says that she is inspired by the perishable nature of the fruits in contrast with the permanence of the silver rings and chains.

“I’ve made my jewelry more than a few months now, and they’re still perfectly fine,” she said. “It must be because they’re dried, they can last a lot longer.”
