Heart On Your Sleeve

You can almost hear the rustling of leaves on a summer day as you don this nature-inspired cuff. Jewelry artist Nancy Nelson hand casts the brass band from real birch bark that she collected along the southern shore of Lake Superior in Wisconsin. The detailed texture of the bark evokes the rich, spontaneous stroke of an artist's brush. 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.

I love this bracelet. I love the story. I love the sentiment. I love the delicate way it was packaged. It's definitely unique and I get many compliments. Another huge bonus: I have really small wrists and it is easy to resize, which I always worry about.

The only thing I would caution anyone about is that the bracelet is not as yellow gold as it appears in the photo. It's gold, but more muted. If I used words to describe the color I would say it's halfway between yellow gold and white gold, but that description is in no way a comment on the metal. I wish it were more yellow gold to match some of my other jewelry, but it's so far away I don't think it will matter.

                        I wear it every day and absolutely adore this bracelet. It's not for layering though, which I thought I might do initially. So now it sits proudly by itself on one arm while my smaller bracelets hang out together on the other one.
