    These earrings are created using Bacteria Cellulose (derived from SCOBY-Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast) a material I have been cultivating from Kombucha. The different colors and textures are derived from various manipulations to the kombucha, types of tea used and overall growing environment. This leather-like alternative is animal-free and 100% biodegradable. These earrings are water-resistant. Handmade in Chicago by MWB Studios.
