“Once I find that perfect object with beautiful shapes and texture, I figure out how I can transform it into a chic piece.”

Consider Nancy Nelson a nature talent scout. “I usually discover the items I cast not too far from home,” she says of the woods surrounding her West Virginia studio. “Once I find that perfect object with beautiful shapes and texture, I figure out how I can transform it into a chic piece.”



 Her passion for working with metals emerged while obtaining her BFA in industrial design. After enrolling in a metalsmithing class where she made her first sterling silver ring, she was hooked and continued developing her own unique style. Modern shapes and rustic forms reflect her belief that jewelry should evoke an emotion and tell a story for every wearer.

Comments about Birthstone Bud Necklace:

I've been looking for a birthstone necklace for myself for a while now. I thought this would be a good option.
However, the necklace (while very pretty) is very roughly made and the metal isn't properly finished. The stones lack color, unlike the picture.
Overall, I'm very disappointed with this item. This necklace wasn't worth the price I paid.

    I received this as a gift from my son and husband and I *love* it - it is simple, yet elegant, and the length is perfect, sits just below the collarbone.

      Comments about Birthstone Bud Necklace:

      I wanted to get my daughter something special, and a little different, for her birthday. This necklace fit the bill perfectly. It displayed her birthstone in an elegant, yet simple, manner. It is the type of necklace she can wear at any time, with any type of clothing. I liked it so much a plan to buy the same necklace for my other daughter for her birthday.

                Comments about Birthstone Bud Necklace:

                Really nice idea, and workmanship looks high quality; not sure, though, if anyone will be able to tell that the stones are aquamarine (the birthstone for March), as they look clear--maybe it's the way they're placed on the branch?
