About My Birch Bark Jewelry:
The bark pieces used are naturally and sustainably hand harvested. At no point in the harvesting process are live trees harmed or involved. All bark is sustainably sourced and harvested in a manner that does not disrupt the natural ecology of the environments they are sourced from. When harvesting, we are careful to leave plenty of material behind for the organisms that thrive off its structural protection and nutrients.
If you have purchased from me before, I get a lot of joy in seeing how my creations fit into your style. Leave a review and send me an image on the product listing or social media:
My process for preparing birch bark includes the following steps:

-Soak the bark in cool water for several more hours.
-With a sponge, remove difficult debris and lift difficult stains.
-Rinse bark pieces and shape into cylinders or lay flat.
-Hold with paper clips and rubber bands.
-Set with wood glue or jewelry glaze once dry.
