BIRCH MERCH

All of Heather Fagan’s jewelry began life as the body armor of a tree, namely that of the tall and magnificent birch. Sloughed off in fragments, the discarded bark makes for surprisingly beautiful accessories. “The pieces reflect the life and beauty of birch bark,” the Detroit-based designer says. “Every piece of bark is different and the textures and unique markings in the bark may make it difficult or even impossible to duplicate.”
