Using harvested Wisconsin birch bark, I strip the bark into very thin pieces, fold them & bite on the folded bark to create a unique image. The brown lines through the bite-pattern are the normal variations in the birch bark. These beautiful one-of-a-kind earrings are set inside metal/glass casings to protect the delicate nature of the bark. The front & back of the earrings are glass so that you can see the bark from either side. Casing measurement is about 1.25 inches & total length from the top of the earring wire to the bottom of the casing Bitten birch bark is an ancient native art form. The elder women of the Woodland Nations created this traditional art by biting the birch with their teeth socializing around the campfire. The designs were often used for bead or quillwork. I am a passionate artist who uses the elements around me to create beautiful pieces of jewelry & art. Everything I make is one-of-a-kind made personally by me in my rural Wisconsin home.
