Best Floral Jewelry (2008)

Kristen �the Flower Lady�

Soho is a real bloomer with Kristen the Flower Lady around. Shes a local vendor who usually stands next to a board tacked full of real flowers, seemingly frozen in time. But make no mistake about it: These arent lovely bouquets you put in a vase. Theyre jewelryearrings and necklaces made from real flowers encased in resin. Her biggest sellers are Dianthus (Sweet William), hydrangea, Scaevola (fan plant), and Queen Annes lace. Prices range from $20 to $60 for earrings and $30 to $150 for necklaces. As long as the weathers good, expect her to be out and about and tell her we sent you.
