  • the story

Heart On Your Sleeve

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.

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.

        Comments about LOVE BIRCH CUFF:

        I love this bracelet. I love the story. I love the sentiment. I love the delicate way it was packaged. It's definitely unique and I get many compliments. Another huge bonus: I have really small wrists and it is easy to resize, which I always worry about.

        The only thing I would caution anyone about is that the bracelet is not as yellow gold as it appears in the photo. It's gold, but more muted. If I used words to describe the color I would say it's halfway between yellow gold and white gold, but that description is in no way a comment on the metal. I wish it were more yellow gold to match some of my other jewelry, but it's so far away I don't think it will matter.

              I wear it every day and absolutely adore this bracelet. It's not for layering though, which I thought I might do initially. So now it sits proudly by itself on one arm while my smaller bracelets hang out together on the other one.

                This bracelet is a fresh approach to fine jewelry, with a purposeful departure from the norm, rough cut, raw and definitely makes a statement.

                  Larger wrist and could never find a beautuful cuff bracelet to fit. This is not only beautiful and well crafted, but fit me perfectly. Comfortable and easy to adjust. Have received many compliments already.

                      I bought this for my mom. She absolutely loved it and I was jealous I didn't buy one for myself. My mom loves birch trees so it couldn't be more perfect. She has gotten tons of compliments on it every time she wears it. It is gorgeous and can be worn dressy or more causal.
