Blue Ridge Beauty

Imagine the perfect, early morning stillness in the Appalachian Mountains. Rolling ridges extend out to the horizon, wrapped in mist, and the carpet of pine needles perfumes the air as you walk. On the forest floor you spot one of nature's gems: a tiny, perfect pinecone.

Jewelry artist Nancy Nelson celebrates that woodland symbol of rebirth and enlightenment in this transcendent necklace. The brass pendant, with its painted blue patina, is hand cast from an actual, delicate pinecone collected from Swallow Falls State Park in Maryland. It's suspended from a delicate 14k gold filled chain with alternating, textured links. Pendant has been finished with a clear sealer to keep its color perpetually fresh. Handmade in West Virginia.

Nancy Nelson

Nancy Nelson believes that jewelry should evoke an emotion and tell a story for every wearer. Her passion for working with metals emerged while obtaining her BFA in Industrial Design. She enrolled in a metalsmithing class where she made her first sterling silver ring. After that point, she was hooked and continued developing her own unique style.

A beautiful blend of modern shapes and rustic forms can be seen in all of her designs. Nancy's works reflects a love for nature, where she finds inspiration in the beauty that surrounds us. "Every natural finding I have casted is discovered by me usually not too far from home in the rural countryside. Once I find that perfect object with beautiful shapes and texture, I bring it back to my studio and figure out how I can transform it into a simple, feminine and rustic chic piece of jewelry." Every one of Nancy's pieces is hand-assembled in her studio in West Virginia.
