Juniper Bark Bracelet
My newest design is an adventure with steel and sterling silver. Inspired by the twisting grey
strands of Juniper bark. Each heavy gauge sterling silver or steel wire is hammered to give it an organic irregular
appearance and all loops are soldered together so they shift with eachother, but never come free. The sound as it dances on
your wrist is musical. $398, please indicate small, medium or large. This item is available for immediate purchase
in my Etsy shop: BeggarsTombSilver
My newest design! These earrings are shown in the brass and copper , also available in
sterling and copper $48. Also available is the necklace, 30" long with both the brass/copper and the silver/copper.

long with an unusual linking that creates a "twiggy" look. Copper, sterling and gold filled components. $148
Also available are two styles of earrings with a modern yet earthy look comprised of one tiny twig per earring $28, or
a double with one long twig and one tiny twig per earring $38. Photos coming soon.
