It could have been Napoleon and Josephine, or Queen Victoria and her beloved Prince Albert. Either way, no historian knows for sure which lovebirds first carved their names into trees. Thousands of years later, Nancy Nelson reimagines the symbolic gesture with her shimmering pendant. Each sterling silver design is cast from tree bark found outside her West Virginia studio. She then etches the word "loved" into the heart's curved edge. Finally, the piece is strung from a 14-karat-gold chain. A sentimental surprise for any occasion, the one-of-a-kind design will remind its wearer that they"re eternally loved. 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 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.
