Many health-conscious people have indulged in kombucha tea, a fermented drink with reported benefits to digestion, the immune system and liver function, among others.
But how many people are wearing kombucha?
“I can only find one other person in the whole world making kombucha jewelry,” said creative wonder Sacha Laurin, a local cheesemaker who has turned her love of all things fermented into wearable art.
Laurin, a native of Australia, began her journey into this new venture about four months ago. Having made her own kombucha for years — with yeast and beneficial bacteria — she started thinking about the “mother culture” that forms when the tea is brewing.
