Love Birch Cuff
You can almost hear the rustling of leaves on a summer day as you don this nature-inspired cuff. Jewelry artist Nancy Nelson hand casts the brass band from real birch bark that she collected along the southern shore of Lake Superior in Wisconsin. The detailed texture of the bark evokes the rich, spontaneous stroke of an artist's brush. The understated heart cut-out pairs beautifully with the birch tree's traditional symbolism of protection and resilience. Handmade in West Virginia.
Be... Inspirational Paperweight
Placed on your desk or countertop, this thought-provoking paperweight from designer Tamara Hensick provides a constant reminder to be your best self. Cast in solid pewter, the word "Be..." is accompanied by a series of cards printed with positive qualities, such as "reliable", "thankful", and "honest". The cards can be displayed in a slot across the top of the ellipsis as a prompt to remember a quality you wish to develop. Or choose a random card each day to focus on a different part of your personal growth. Made in Los Angeles.
