The Bitter Herb Designs: Jewelry fresh from the Forest

As my sons and I were wandering through the woods enjoying nature one day, we began talking about how we wish there was a way to bring a piece of nature back with us to keep. We began experimenting with casting various lichens, mosses, ferns, and mushrooms in resin. The result was the unique pieces you will see below.

Each piece perfectly captures the essence of nature. We hope they will bring you as much joy as they bring us.

(Please excuse our limited quantities.  Each ring takes a while to create and we only create these as we have time.  Check back often for new pieces!)


yarrow one
Yarrow Ring: Size 6
Historically, yarrow has symbolized protection and strength.  It has been employed on battlefields for its wound healing and blood clotting effects, in addition to being used to reduce fevers and cleanse the body.  I had to capture this valuable herb in resin, as it is one of my favorites to work with as an herbalist.  Wear it as a reminder to keep boundaries and protect what is sacred to you.  I included a lovely fern-like leaf, as well as the tiny dried flowers.
