Fireweed Necklace

When I received these pink rubies I was immediately reminded of fireweed and knew I had to create some artwork that would celebrate this beautiful plant. This incredible, one of a kind necklace is entirely handcrafted from recycled sterling silver and features a sturdy, double-layered hand-sawn fireweed flanked on either side by vibrant pink, faceted rubies. I've bezel set the stones and connected them to the fireweed centrepiece using jump rings to create movement. The necklace measures 18 inches from end to end and can be shortened upon request. Just leave me a note at checkout or send me an email via the contact form. Oxidized satin finish for an old world feel.

Fireweed is one of my all time favourite wildflowers. This plant has such beautiful wisdom about how to inhabit the good green earth. After fire + forest harvesting, it quickly spreads across the disturbed land; facilitating ecological succession + reforestation with its presence by making the soil + forest floor more hospitable.

In addition to healing the land, fireweed has many medicinal properties - it’s anti-inflammatory + anti-fungal, and it tastes lovely as a tea or eaten when the plants are young.

It’s one of the most ubiquitous + most beautiful plants of the northern hemisphere, lighting up vast swaths of this land with its brilliant magenta blooms.

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.
