leaf birch cuffby Nancy Nelson $128.00
- the story
The forms of Nancy Nelson's woodsy cuff bracelet are drawn from two forest findings: subtly textured birch bark and lace-edged young oak leaves. Nelson created molds from these natural elements, then joined them and cast the hybrid form in brass, with a green patina added to the leaves. The whole composition is hand-finished and sealed to preserve the color and luster. It's an accessory abundant in the shapes, textures and colors of the forest. Handmade in the USA.

- the maker
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.
