Pure birch paper inset in sterling silver necklaces/ jewellery... Birch Paper Dreams
 

 
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.
