Designer Nancy Nelson believes jewelry should tell a story. This necklace, composed of a large lichen from an old oak tree, was cast in sterling silver and oxidized, creating a piece that evokes memories of forest floor wanderings and climbing trees in the park—or parking lot, depending on where you grew up. Either way, it’s fancifully chic and bohemian. Hand-threaded turquoise stones add a fairytale ending to this accessory’s story.
Sterling silver chain is 17” long. Lichen pendant is 3.25" wide and 2.75" high. Lobster Clasp. Because each piece is handmade, color and texture may vary slightly.
