Sharon Goldberg is a super cool chick (and Greenpoint resident) that started this one woman show and has a knack for creating beautiful teeny tiny terrariums that you can wear!
It all started when she had custom made a terrarium for a friend who loved it so much he said he wished he could wear it! Wishes do come true and these self sustaining wearable pieces of nature make a very special gift.
