Eco chic: Earrings are a slice of history

By Bree Coven Brown / Special to Sunday Market

DeanRobertson_400_0315Take a slice of nature with you wherever you go with Forest Life Creations Earrings, handmade from reclaimed organic wood.

Dean Robertson of Edmonds salvages scrap wood from the recycling bins of woodworking schools and cabinet shops, or from downed trees in neighbors’ yards, to craft elegant, lightweight earrings.

The swirling pink Honey Locust Wood Slice Earrings were cut from a dead branch in Ballard, while the bold Monkey Puzzle Wood Earrings were salvaged from a West Seattle tree. And the Live Edge Ceanothus Wood Earrings, made from the cross-cut of a branch, reveal the wood’s inner rings.

$30–$85 at etsy.com/shop/forestlifecreations, Venue (Ballard)
