About tree trunk arts

Nature speaks to us all. 
The trees that line our streets, the plants we fill our windowsills with, the blooms we decorate our tables with. The textures and forms of nature, that are so much a part of our everyday lives constantly inspire me. Through the process of casting, I have found a way to preserve them forever and allow us to wear the moments of nature we love.  Over the last 8 years I have been collecting and casting the seeds and twigs that catch my eye and turning them into jewelry to wear everyday.  
If the beauty of nature is all around us, why not wear it?

Collyn DeBano, the designer and maker behind tree trunk arts, started the company in 2009, while receiving a degree in Jewelry and Metalsmithing.  Now from her home studio in Detroit, Michigan, she creates this one of a kind line of jewelry using the actual plant in the process. Each piece is one of a kind, due to the wonder of nature and her spin on the casting process.
