Birches - Canvases of our Childhoods

“So was I once myself a swinger of birches.
And so I dream of going back to be.” –Robert Frost

Birch trees are the canvases of our childhoods. In innocent times, we’d lay down at a birch tree’s roots to inch our gaze up its tall white trunk, tracing its dark etchings through the bark until the sunlight spotting its tallest leaves sent us sleeping. The blanched forests were our playground—our maypoles and springboards, our shelter from the heat. In the cold, we’d watch their stick figures and brightly-decorated boughs dance in watercolor upon the lake, striping our sepia dreams.

Memories like these are what drew Nancy Nelson Jewelry to design our first Birch Cuff: it’s a slice of nostalgia in the gentle clutch of a childhood friend.

The Birch Cuff was one of Nancy Nelson Jewelry’s earliest designs, and it remains one of your favorites today.

Robert Frost might say that you like the way it swings.

Offered in a range of designs—Nancy Nelson Jewelry Birch Cuffs are cast in brass, gold or sterling silver. Need more color with your birch? Check out our Patinaed Birch Cuff, and our Birch and Aquamarine Bracelet.
