Naturally Cast

In the Appalachians, rolling green ridges extend to the horizon. Despite the grandeur of this big picture, Nancy Nelson is focused on nature's fine detail, like the delicately repeating pattern of cedar branches. She gathers small cedar sprigs that she hand casts in brass using the lost wax technique. Suspended from a stud of sparkling white topaz, they're organically elegant pieces that pair well with any outfit that could use some woodsy sparkle. 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.

I loved these in the pictures but when I received them I wasn't impressed with the quality. I showed them to my 30 year old daughter and she agree they were not up to snuff. They are being returned.
