Dropped from a tree in Historic Downtown Charlottesville, Virginia, this delicate brass-cast leaf made its way through artisan hands to become a wearable natural accessory. The leaf pendant hangs from a delicate oxidized sterling silver chain. From special occasions to daily wear, it’s a beautiful accessory you’ll want to show off with any look.

|Artisan Story||Nancy Nelson is a creator of authentically nature-inspired jewelry, which she makes in collaboration with Mother Nature herself. Nancy’s designs range from twigs and leaves to stems and flowers, but each an every piece is cast and created form an actual finding. She realized her passion for jewelry making in a metalsmith class during her college career as an industrial design major, and after school in 2007, she began her own business. By 2011 the business had grown to a full-operational level and Nancy found the need to grow her home as well. She built an in-home studio where she could continue to be inspired by the natural scenery around her forest home in the Appalachian Mountains , as well as balance her role as a wife and loving mother. You can still find her here today, drawing inspiration from the world around her and translating the marvel for nature she sees in her children’s eyes into wearable, all-natural, beautiful jewelry pieces.|
