As the Twig Bends

Do you remember the childlike enchantment of collecting souvenirs—rocks, twigs, flowers—as you frolicked around outside? Designer Nancy Nelson helps keep that sentiment alive with her one-of-a-kind necklace. Each brass pendant is cast from small branches found outside her West Virginia studio. Shen then strings a row of silver "seed" beads onto a 14-karat gold-plated chain. The design travels from Nancy's nature-filled studio to your loved one, whether they're an outdoor enthusiast or just keep that innocent curiosity. 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.
