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.  


Alianthus Earrings
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.  $398, photo below.



Pussy Willow Necklace
 Another New Design! This necklace is 30" 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.
