Douglas Fir Sprigs on Ring Earrings

 

 

Two sterling silver sprigs cast from a Douglas fir tree swing from a 1/2" ring.  These earrings are lightweight, comfortable, flattering, and pair perfectly with the Douglas fir bar necklace.



Douglas fir trees are everywhere in the Pacific Northwest. On the coast, they commonly live at least 500 years. They are often planted in reforestation efforts throughout the region—and for good reason, they’re hardy and lovely evergreens. I found this sprig without needles and loved its knobby texture.
