Meghan Simmons is an Alaska born artist based in Anchorage, Alaska. Her jewelry uses sustainably harvested birch bark collected during her many adventures around the state.
With a background in Biology and a passion for art, these pieces showcase the delicate and natural patterns intrinsic to birch. Each piece is made by hand and is one of a kind.
Natural birch bark is put together with sterling silver and semi-precious beads. A protective coating ensures the bark retains its natural color and protects the wood from moisture.
Your purchase also helps support Ocean Conservancy: working to bring people, science and policy together with a mission to counter the many threats to ocean health and sustainability. From protecting vital, vulnerable ecosystems through legislation, to enforcing accountability among leaders, Ocean Conservancy seeks solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it.
"When I was in Kachemak Bay, Alaska in August 2017, I became entranced by a pair of earrings worn by one of our guides. She told me about the artist, and I went in search of the earrings in Homer, Alaska. Each pair is one of a kind, the birch bark collected by hand by the artist. They are incredibly light to wear and remind me of our fundamental connection to the forest and all things wild." - Tigger
