Pussy Willows (Salix alaxensis)

Yukon jewellery designer, Esther Winter, has joined together the much loved Pussy Willow with a thin layer of actual birch paper from the Alaska Paper Birch.

After seeing the first ones out, we happily pronounce that "the pussy willows are out" to the next person we see! They always make us smile. In the comedy of nature, the first signs of spring are actually wearing a furry coat!

Interestingly, the inner bark of the willow has been used as a folk remedy for pain relief and to aid inflammation.

Birch paper jewellery, a natural canvas for the artwork of nature. Yukon Jewellery designer, Esther Winter, collects birch paper from the Alaska Paper Birch trees (Betula neoalaskana) in the forest near her community. The outer layers of birch paper naturally peel off and can be sustainably removed without causing any harm to the tree. Esther's photographs of flora and fauna are copied onto a transparent film. The birch paper and photograph are inset in a sterling silver casing and capped with domed glass. The necklace pendant is suspended on an 18 inch silver and copper coloured double strand cable (nylon covered stainless steel cable wire) with a sterling silver clasp.
 

Please Note: Our jewellery is handcrafted and may vary slightly from one another. Each piece of birch paper is unique, some lighter and some darker which we feel adds to its appeal.

 

 

Jewellery Presentation:

Each Birch Paper Dreams necklace is displayed on a jewellery card. On the card front is the name of the flora and fauna in English and Latin and on the card back is a description of the flora and fauna. Inside each card is the artist background, creative process, and care instructions.
