The Heart of Nature

This rustic necklace by jewelry artist Nancy Nelson captures the natural charm of a sprawling forest populated by snowy birch trees. Nancy hand-casts a sheet of brass from reach birch bark that she collects along the southern shore of Lake Superior in Wisconsin. Its natural texture evokes the spontaneous stroke of an artist's brush across the canvas. The understated heart cut-out pairs beautifully with the birch tree's traditional symbolism of protection and resilience. Handmade in West Virginia.

“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.
