birch bark cuff

Originally uploaded by esjewelry

I remember when I found the bark for this one- I just knew it was "the" piece of birch bark! Birch bark cast in sterling silver is sort of a contradiction- something so fragile, made fairly permanent. To really make the indentations stand out, I did some selective polishing to remove some of the dull gray surface texture, giving it a pearly white matte glow in contrast to the dark markings of the birch bark. It's a large piece and something I don't expect to sell many of, but I'm happy with the results.

This is a beautiful cuff! I love jewelry inspired or made by found objects from nature. Simply lovely.
