Woodland Whimsy

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 these transcendent earrings. The brass drops, with their hand-painted blue patina, are cast from actual, delicate pinecones collected from Swallow Falls State Park in Maryland. They're suspended from 14k gold-filled earring wires. The earrings have been finished with a clear sealer to keep their color perpetually fresh. 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.
