Blue Ridge Beauty

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 this transcendent necklace. The brass pendant, with its painted blue patina, is hand cast from an actual, delicate pinecone collected from Swallow Falls State Park in Maryland. It's suspended from a delicate 14k gold filled chain with alternating, textured links. Pendant has been finished with a clear sealer to keep its color perpetually fresh. Handmade in Maryland.

“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 Maryland 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.

Really liked the pendant. I thought the chain was a little clunky/distracting, as I like more simple, understated things, but my sister-in-law said she loved the necklace.

Beautiful necklace

This necklace is perfect for my sister, as she lives in Oregon and is very out-doorsy, but is also a healthcare professional. It is fitting to her personality, and can easily be worn at work, for going out, or casually. She enjoyed receiving it for her birthday.

I was so pleased with this necklace, it's just perfect! I love the detail and weight of the pine cone and how it balances the beautiful oval link chain. I know that this will be a signature piece that I will enjoy every time I wear it.

Rustic yet pretty :)

The gold and turquoise go well with much of my attire! Definitely an outdoorsy, rustic feel to this piece, but it's also very pretty and delicate. I'd prefer the chain be just an inch or two longer for me personally.

My new favorite necklace

I purchased this necklace to wear for my wedding. It's perfect. It's just the right size and weight (it's on the heavier side). I've already worn it out, and the length is fantastically adjustable- it could go with a range of necklines. I've gotten many compliments on it already. I love it.
