Birch bark earrings


I’ve been so busy working on my second business, apartment rentals, trying to completely rehab a three bedroom home with all new paint, carpeting and flooring, and new plumbing, that I haven't taken the time to show the items of the week.

I was asked by a business if I could create some birch bark earrings as they had lost their supplier and my reply was, sure I’ll give it a try.

Now to prep. Soaking just a portion of the birch bark to clean and remove any little bits and pieces. Doesn’t even look like I touched the full tote. After soaking to clean and make a little more pliable, I am going to press between carboard to flatten.

Once dried and flattened, comes the fun part.

Designing new earrings. What do you want to see? I’ve made several and have loved them all, but they are already all sold. If you have any ideas on a style you would like to see, let me know at

So now I have several pieces of clean and ready to go birch bark. I’ll keep you updated on the progress of styles.

Of course, I will be deer hunting is just around the corner, so maybe I’ll sneak in a few minutes searching for more bark.
