Simple Birch Bark Cuff - Single Wide
Birch bark cuffs! A little tribute to that sturdy + tough little tree. Cut it down, it sprouts from the stump and forms a magical birch coppice. Burn it, it'll come back up from root suckers. We can all learn a thing or two from the mighty birch tree.
This simple birch bark cuff is sturdily constructed from heavy gauge recycled sterling silver, which I textured by hand to give the appearance of lenticels - the little lines on the bark of birch and poplar trees that give them their characteristic appearance. I've oxidized the silver to make the pattern stand out before hand-polishing it, and given it a rustic satin finish for an old world feel.
The bracelet is 3.25mm from top to bottom and 1.65mm thick, and measures approx. 5.75 inches with a 1-1.5 inch opening, making it one size fits most. These are adjustable to fit your unique wrist, simply slip it on and then push down on the inside ends.
All handcrafted using traditional silversmithing techniques, with my own two hands and a lot of heart and soul. Each North Star Silver order comes lovingly packaged and ready for gift-giving. I use GOTS-certified organic cotton jewelry bags and/or 100% post consumer recycled kraft jewelry boxes with natural cotton filling. All orders come with a complimentary polish pad.
