I won second place in the Norwegian Association of Jewellery Designers yearly design contest!
The theme was “Us two, together”, so I chose to make rings by picking and casting real bark in white gold, so the rings are connected to eachother through the tree they came from. I chose to decorate them with yellow gold birch leaves as a symbol of strength, after seeing a tiny little birch tree growing straight out of the mountain side, and how it thrived despite the harsh conditions it grew in.
The bark texture is a combination of actual bark, and details sculpted by me. The leaves are hand fabricated and soldered on.
