Highlands Sea Glass Garden Pendant


NEW JERSEY CONVENTION CENTER, EDISON, NJ—February 16, 2006 — Called “Room Jewelry,” The Portfolio and Portrait series of the Garden Pendant Collection®, a garden-item collectible, will be showcased at the 4th Annual New Jersey Flower, Garden and Outdoor Living Show at booth #362.  Leeann Lavin, a New Jersey native, garden designer, and creator of the Garden Pendant Collection® will be available at the show to discuss how these hand-painted, etched containers that are custom-crafted with the ethereal look of watercolors were designed to be collectibles.  The Garden Pendant Collection is the first-ever line of hanging planters designed with both beauty and functionality in mind, with a built-in water reservoir for self-watering, in order to maintain healthier plants. 


The Portfolio line Pendants are set off with an attractive fleur de lis chain clasp and the Portrait line features botanical and plant designs.  All come complete with hanging chain.  


If visitors feel there is something familiar about the sound of these planters, they should.  The planters are named for some of the places that are close to this Jersey Girl’s heart and reflect the beauty of the Garden State with names such as Sandy Hook Sea Grass, Lincroft Linen, Fair Haven Flowers, Highlands Sea Glass, Rumson Rambler, and Sea Bright Bikini!   


According to the National Gardening Association and industry reports, container gardening and vertical gardening is a hot trend.  And as interest grows, so does the need for unique, yet useful gardening products to showcase the beauty of the plants as well as the room décor,” said Leeann, Garden Pendant designer, Duchess Designs, and creator of the Garden Pendant Collection.  “The Portfolio and Portrait Series are so popular – they are destined to be a great collectible.  The designs are one-of-a-kind that will not be made again.  Our upcoming launch of the Bling! Series reflects the rich, lustrous look of jewelry—including turquoise, sapphire, amber, and coral, that will add a new dimension to any container garden.” she added.


The 4th Annual NJ Flower, Garden & Outdoor Living Show will be open on Thursday, Feb. 16, from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm; on Friday, Feb. 17 from 10:00 to 9:00 pm, on Saturday, Feb. 18, 10:00 am to 9:00 pm and on Sunday, Feb. 19, from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
