Clean minimalist design and a variety of gemstones lend the Salon collection of Tessoro’s jewelry a modern air. In many of the pieces the pearl or gemstone is stitched onto the bark creating a floating appearance. Other designs feature the natural green lichen in place of gemstones, deriving their strength from simplicity. Each piece makes use of the natural variations in materials and are truly one-of-a-kind.
Materials include: natural birch bark, sterling silver, green moss
Ear wires 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.
