Wrist Wreath

Sarah Daigneault infuses her copper cuff's lifelike birch leaves with nature's effortless elegance. Beginning with a sculptural approach, she first engraves details like leaf veins onto thin copper sheets with an acid etch process, then hand-saws and sands each cluster. Switching to her painterly skills, Sarah highlights the leaves with three colors of enamel glaze: neon yellow, shell pink, and turquoise. The resulting green nearly glows, mimicking the ever-changing hue of real leaves in natural light. A final layer of jewelry lacquer preserves both shine and color.

The first tree to grow back after a fire or clearing, birch has symbolized beginnings and renewal since the last Ice Age, when the graceful white trees with the fluttering leaves reforested where glaciers had receded. Wearing Sarah's lightweight wrist wreath is a constant reminder of nature's potent beauty, which inhabits all life—including ours. Handmade in Pennsylvania.

Sarah Daigneault has been studying and making art since her childhood in Maine, years before she began taking formal art classes at age eight. Over the course of her extensive schooling, she studied and practiced every medium imaginable: sculpture, drawing, painting, film, metalwork, photography, digital video, and graphic design among them. On her own, she began collecting and then reworking vintage jewelry, using the skills she’d learned in metalworking classes. She developed a love of jewelry making, and now her art and design background play a huge role in the planning and creation of her designs. Sarah now lives and creates in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
