Lobe Hanging Fruit is a company started by 16 year old artist Miranda Whitaker, based in Viroqua, WI. Miranda was taught by her mother at a young age to make earrings out of beads, and has been creating jewelry ever since. In 2018, Miranda wanted to find a way to get more creative with her jewelry, and combined her love of fashion, food and art to create something people could wear and enjoy. The idea came to her when one day she was browsing the internet looking for jewelry, and came across some strawberry earrings. She was thinking about buying them when she figured she could just make some for herself. And thus Lobe Hanging Fruit was born.
