Nature, Gilded

With fallen leaves found on a woodland walk, jewelry artist Nancy Nelson preserves a fleeting, golden moment of autumn's glory. She makes molds of her delicate specimens and casts them in brass to capture their exquisite details. She then links three of them together to create a symmetrical, naturally elegant necklace, and hangs them from an 18-inch, gold-filled chain. The graceful trio brings nature's organic elegance to your ensemble. 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.
