The Birch Bloom earrings pays homage to the beautiful tradition of birch bark etching. Characteristic of Howes' work, the Birch Bloom earrings carry forth the Ojibwe floral tradition of teaching about plants that care for the water, including wild taro, yellow flag and duckweed.
These beautiful earrings were developed during Sarah's recent visit to the Eighth Generation headquarters and are lovingly assembled by Eighth Generation staff in our Seattle studios. They are cut from real cedar wood and high resolution printed with multiple layers of protective coating.
