Rowan handcrafts one-of-a kind jewellery from the branches of Arbutus, or Pacific Madrone. Unique to the Pacific Northwest, the Arbutus symbolizes protection and safety— the spirit of which Rowan imbues in his work. Using only branches that have fallen naturally, each piece is honoured as a gift from the earth. Cultivating peace, insight, and guidance through working in harmony with the wood, Rowan uses a freehand cut design and an intuitive sense to determine which image wants to emerge. These images are inspired by the natural west coast, where the artist’s heart and soul have made their home.
