"A mother is clothed with strength and dignity, laughs without fear of the future. When she speaks her words are wise and she gives instructions with kindness."
Let her know this Mother's Day just how much she is loved, celebrated and honored.
Nature sets the example for Nancy Nelson Jewelry’s Fall 2016 Collection. Inspired by the rough outlines of an autumn forest and the light that shimmers and beats through its leaves and streams, the sophisticated line freezes the enchanting landscape timelessly.
“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.
Oooh oooh oooh—what a little moonstone can do for you.
Its pearly-white glow—opaque when the moon is new and iridescent when it is full—is believed to bring its wearer peace, balance, good fortune and heightened intuition. Lovers drawn to its romantic folklore have long sought the light of a full moon—when moonstone’s passionate and protective properties are most powerful—to exchange the luminous stone as gifts.
So as the moon brings us to summer, Nancy Nelson Jewelry wants to give one of you a pair of our Moonstricken Twig Earrings—a gift to our fans and the perfect gift to yourself or your lover, whomever the earrings fit.
Through our Summer Solstice Giveaway, anyone who signs up for our newsletter on nancynelsonjewelry.com between June 20 and June 28 will be entered to win the dangly sterling silver pair—each dripping with a rainbow moonstone spun with 14k gold.
Good Luck! The winner will be announced on June 30.

A buzz of bees darting from dandelion to daffodil is Mother Nature’s way of signaling her return to spring; their flirting flight pollinates our food and brings blooms to light, and their homes of hexagonal honeycombs are their monument to a moxie unmatched in the animal kingdom.
