I find fallen birch trees by the side of the road, or on the ground when I'm hiking. I've been collecting beautiful pieces for a while now, and am beginning to learn how to make the best use of the bark!
Birch Pictures These images are wood-burned onto the birch-bark, which is then backed by a piece of birch plywood to make it stronger, and coated with an encaustic mixture of beeswax and tree resin to protect the bark!
Birch Earrings This birch is cut into shapes, edged with metal tape, and coated with an encaustic mixture of beeswax and tree resin to make the bark stronger. The ear wires are made from sterling silver.
Birch Ornaments These are made from bits of birch, beautiful for a garland, or christmas tree, or a winter nature table.
