The philosophy of Silver Forest of Vermont is to create wearable art that transcends fashion trends. Nature, the environment, ancient cultures, and a subtle sense of humor influence our designs. All Silver Forest jewelry is hand crafted in Bellows Falls, Vermont. The gold tone finish is a tarnish resistant 18k gold finish over brass, the silver tone finish is a tarnish resistant rhodium over brass, and the copper finish is a rose gold over brass. Most of the METALS in there jewelry consist of raw brass or copper elements. Each shape or disk is, cut and rolled out with our textures, from a raw sheet of metal. They use 12 different textures and over 1000 shapes.Silver Forest jewelry is always soldered together, never glued. This creates a slight variation in every piece, which gives the ambiance of wearable art. Enjoy!
