BACK storyMore about this necklace
From the beginning, the backs were just as important to my designs as the fronts. The backs needed to be simultaneously beautiful, lightweight, AND reinforcing to the bark so it would be strong and lasting. I experimented many times with a variety of methods, and this was the result! It has definitely stood the test of time.
MEET THE ARTIST
Patricia Flynn of Portland Maine. Artist, gardener, forager, forest dreamer. I harvest only small, choice bits from carefully selected specimens along my path. I generally cover 3-5 miles to fill a knapsack with just a few special pieces of bark that I deem suitable for jewelry.
MEET THE TREES
Sustainably harvested from naturally fallen trees. Paper Birch and Gray Birch, both native to the Maine woods, have classic white bark with endlessly fascinating markings and textures.
