Kombucha jewelry maker showcased at The Wardrobe

“Where Nature Meets Bling” is the title of a special event Saturday at The Wardrobe in downtown Davis, featuring Sacha Laurin, local “biocouture” designer. The event will run from noon to 3 p.m. at the store, 206 E St.

Laurin will introduce her latest summer collection of kombucha jewelry. As well as being a renowned cheese maker, Laurin makes jewelry by fermenting green tea using a kombucha mother culture. The culture reproduces prolifically and the individual cultures — known as scobys (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast) — are sun-dried, using essential oils to protect and nourish them, creating cured, beautiful vegetarian leather.

Every jewelry piece is one of a kind, a unique expression of Laurin’s passion for fermentation, art and the body, mind and spirit balance. Garden flowers, organic indigo, tumeric, beet dyes, pigments, beads and jewels adorn the scobys to transform them into living, fermented fashion.

A native Australian, Laurin says she “loves to make something from nothing.” Many people use kombucha tea to help with digestion, their immune system and healthy liver function. Laurin has found only one other person in the world who has turned this tea into wearable fashion.

Saturday’s event is free and open to the public. For more information, call The Wardrobe at 530-756-1128 or email staff@thewardrobe.com.
