Douglas Fir Bark Hoops
Douglas Fir trees are everywhere in the Pacific Northwest, and I felt constantly inspired by them throughout my trip down Highway 1 last fall. On the coast, they commonly live at least 500 years. They are often planted in reforestation efforts throughout the region—and for good reason, they’re hardy and lovely evergreens.
I cast Douglas Fir bark pieces in sterling silver and fashioned them into hoop earrings. I absolutely love how these turned out! From a distance, they might look like regular hoop earrings, but up close you’ll see just how special the bark texture really is. These earthy, fun earrings are already favorites among my friends.
Material: recycled sterling silver
Earring size: 2” long, 1/2” wide at widest point
