Come make a terrarium and drink beer at Diamond Bar (43 Franklin St) on Sunday May 12, 2013 from 5-7pm, with Claire. All supplies are included, plus a beer. For $50, come empty handed and leave with a beautifully made-by-you terrarium filled with ferns, decorative stones, pretty moss, and enjoy a complimentary Sly Fox!
The terrarium I made over a year ago, thanks to Claire is still thriving and I have somehow managed to keep my evil cat from destroying it! I am very proud of it and know you will enjoy yours for a long time, too.
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.
