Handcrafted on Vancouver Island by the "Windy Tree Artisan", Robert Walton.
Arbutus branches which have fallen naturally are collected from the forest floor. The Arbutus, or Pacific Madrone, is a tree unique to the Pacific North West, defining the West Coast with its stunning and rugged beauty. The wood is hard, durable and ages well, the colour becoming richer the more it is worn.
After the branches are harvested from the forest floor, they are cut into discs, sanded until they are smooth, and then allowed to dry for a period of six months. Each nature inspired design is then delicately carved individually and free-hand on a scroll saw using a rare microblade, making each one an original piece of art. A water-based satin varnish is applied and the jewelry completed with the various finishings.
Each individually hand carved piece makes a truly wonderful eco-friendly unique gift, and contains a design inspired by Canada's natural West Coast.
