Enjoy the second preview for the upcoming release!
Forest Friendship Necklaces
There will be (32) pairs and (13) singles available
The sizes range from 1.25” – 2” from the top of the loop to the bottom of the pendants
Suspended from a slightly shorter oxidized sterling silver chain that is adjustable from 16-19”
Price: Singles – $110, Pairs – $180
Simple moss agate necklaces, understated enough to tuck under a sweater or toss on with a dress.
There is a rim around each stone which has been been textured to look like tree bark.
And the back has been given a rough, organic weathering to look like something you could have picked up on the forest floor.
These necklaces are special because they are each set with a stone cut from the same rough, like the two sides of the same coin.
Some of the stones look identical, just reversed; others are quite different from one another, depending on how the moss and dendrites layered in the stone.
Each pair is so unique; varying patterns of moss floating through the stones, different gemstone shapes, the texturing on the back carrying its own imprint taken from a bit of granite outside my cabin.
And this singularity feels so perfect for this design, as these will be shared between two singular people.
For those who claim single necklaces, their unique connection will be to a complete stranger in the necklaces themselves, two halves of the same gemstone.
For those who claim a pair, the connection between the two wearers will be shared experience from different perspectives. Life and love imprinting differently on each, but again, two halves of the same whole.
In either case, I hope part of the connection (between friends or strangers) is an everlasting love of the forest, and hearing the call to return to it.
On these necklaces I have inscribed two halves of a phrase. One side reads “Silva Vocat” (The Forest Calls) and the other says “Amici Respondent” (Friends Answer). Much like the stones, they complete one another.
Grove Cuff Bracelet
There will be 6 cuff bracelets available.
Sizes: Four S/M (5.75″) bracelets; Two M/L (6.75″) bracelets
Price: $180 per cuff
This cuff bracelet is made of sterling silver and features a smooth, large, oval moss agate gemstone with swirls of green stone moss flowing through.
Circling the stone is a tiny pebble border. Two stalwart coniferous trees stand on either side of the stone.
The small/medium bracelets measure about 5.75″ (+ a 1″ gap) and the medium/large bracelets measure about 6.75″ (+ a 1″ gap).
Set atop an easily adjustable split double half-round band for stability and comfort.
Original Tree of Light Necklace
Only (4) will be available.
They each measure roughly 1.75” from the top of the loop to the bottom.
Suspended from a oxidized sterling silver chain that is adjustable from 17-20″
I first made the Tree of Light Necklace in 2014, and I thought it would be a wonderful time to recreate it exactly!
It features a moss agate gemstone with swirls of green, brown, orange, and white inside. Like a slice of the forest.
Sawn out of the back of these pendants is a solitary chunky deciduous tree.
Bordering the stone is a hand-twisted rope border.
There will be (21) pairs available.
They measure roughly 1.25″ from the top of the earwire to the bottom of the earring
Price: $115 per pair
Earrings of all sterling silver featuring domes of moss agate. Some are light with wisps of green swirling through, others are solidly packed with tufts of moss.
They truly look like clumps of preserved moss lilting below your ears.
I have sawn the backs from the earrings so the light can stream through and illuminate all the little tendrils and frills of stone moss.
I have photographed them against a solid background in soft light, as well as with sunlight flowing through.
The leafy serrated bezel, shadowy border, and the textured bark edge offset the stones, particularly when they are out in the sunshine.
I love these shorter, stouter earrings! Earrings for walking through shadowy forests.
