The Myrtlewood is a tree that goes by many names, but it thrives in only one area—the beautiful coastal forests of the Pacific Northwest. One of its names—the California bay—hints at just how much these leaves resemble culinary bay leaves. But fresh Myrtlewood leaves have a peppery aroma all their own and were often used by Native American tribes as medicine.
I love the perfect angularity of these leaves. Once I cast them in sterling silver, I discovered they are the perfect size and shape for earrings! They seem to look great on everyone. The hoops make these earrings a lot of fun to wear, and the leaf charms catch the light beautifully.
