Birch "Aniibiish" Adjustable Ring
For my health, my loved ones, & my traditions. Life is sacred. I am loved. I am not alone. Little reminders of hope.
The Exquisite Birch collection has been harvested in a respectful and meaningful way, straight from my backyard. Sustaining in unforgiving climates, the birch tree is a natural pioneer in the Great Lakes Region. High-shine and lightweight, the Exquisite Birch collection is simply exquisite. The coating that incases the Birch Bark, acts as a sap preserving the bark. The material inside is raw and sealed in an amber-like casing. The silvery white bark gives a striking appearance on the outside. The inside of the bark is a deep peach color. Both the front and the back tell different stories of the tree's personal identity and continuation, like a finger print. Preserving a natural history and like the layers that build the Birch tree the bark speaks a beautiful, distinctive truth.
My creations stem from the native hybridity, intertwining of my two worlds and developing a bicultural composite. The cultural blend is due to the authenticity of my Native American roots and the influence of European dealings. An example of how a piece of art can transform over time in response to cultural encounters. I create not only for aesthetic but functional purpose to provide healing opportunities and tangible strength.
Mother Earth over diamonds.

Please note the materials encased are natural and come from the earth. There will be "flaws" and "mistakes". I intentionally seek the imperfect, and personally love raw beauty. Each piece of jewelry will not look like the photo because your jewelry is unique, however I try to make the jewelry as close to the photo as I can. Each piece is made by hand and not a machine so tiny bubbles, bumps and slight imperfections are part of the unique characteristics of the jewelry.
Love our Mother Earth as we love our own Mothers. Protect her at all costs. To save her…We save ourselves.
