The smallest bit of a twig - just enough to capture the organic texture and detail. Most come from willow or Chinese chestnut, so you can just see a bit of the leaf bud. They were collected from Belle Isle in Detroit.
Cast from the actual plant in solid recycled metals, preserving the unique nature of each plant to make truly one-of-a-kind jewelry. These dainty studs measure approximately 1/4 to 1/2 inch with the post in the center.
A variety of metals are available. Please select from the drop-down menu.
• Sterling Silver
• 18k Gold Vermeil
Please note that you will not receive the exact pieces pictured. Each piece is handcrafted and made with the same care, but given that no plants are the same, no two pieces can be the same. The size specifications will be similar to that in the photograph.

Tree trunk Arts hand casts natural elements in solid silver and bronze. Through the wonder of nature and the artist’s spin on the lost wax casting process, each piece is unique. The plant parts are put into a wet plaster then the plaster mold goes into a kiln for 8+ hours, burning out the plant material to create a mold. Molten metal is centrifugally thrown into the mold creating a solid metal model to be then transformed into ready-to-wear jewelry.
