You can almost hear the rustling of leaves on a summer day as you don this nature-inspired cuff. Each one is custom engraved with two sets of initials, continuing the romantic tradition of carving lovers' names into bark (without harming a tree). 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 cutout pairs beautifully with the birch tree's traditional symbolism of protection and resilience. 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.

This is a one of kind bangle, that is very dear to me and my collection of personalized jewelry but there are some gripes that I have with my particular custom piece.
This was rather difficult for me to put on and off as I do not have small wrists, but average, so I'm told.... But I could not get it to hold shape when putting on and I would find myself keeping it slightly smaller at the opening to slip on and get small cuts at times, just to save from having to readjust the symmetry of the bangle around my wrist. I just Love how it lays on my wrist. simile every time I glance at it.
It seems that my skin may react with this metal... My wrist turns green Fromm wearing. I put a clear coat of nailpolish ad it seemed to work,, but soon after my from all the adjusting to put on and off the clear coat chipped off. I ended up applying a two thins coats of Modpodge,, outdoor. Wish I didn't have to modpodge a $100 piece of jewelry but, I guess this will do.

            This cuff bracelet is perfect for anyone looking to give a jewelry gift with some sentimentality. It has just the right amount of personalization for everyday wear, yet still makes a bold statement about your relationship. I love the birch bark design, as it is not a perfectly smooth service which gives it more character. You really can't go wrong with this one.
