"Nordic" Post Earrings
The clean lines and strong forms of Scandinavian design inspire the Nordic collection by Tessoro. Both sides of the bark are utilized in strong contrast, while the torn edges reveal the passing of time. Heavy gauge hand hammered sterling silver wire against the birch bark creates a look that is bold and austere. Each piece makes use of the natural variations in materials and are truly one-of-a-kind.
Materials include: natural birch bark, hammered sterling silver
Posts are sterling silver

About the artist:
Jewelry designer, Deborah Bushinski, designs Tessoro Jewelry to feature the natural beauty of birch bark. The bark used is salvaged from the northern Minnesota logging industry. The bark is then cut or torn and coated with an acrylic polymer to add to its durability. The copper is recycled from car radiators. Semi-precious stones, sterling beads, freshwater pearls, and turquoise nuggets are used sparingly to enhance the designs. In her studio in Minnetonka, Minnesota, Deb carefully chooses her materials and maintains the integrity and demanding level of fine craftsmanship you expect in each piece.
Hand-crafted in the U.S.A.
