Boreal Bracelet

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.

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.
