I create these beautiful Birch Wood Earrings from start to finish. I start the process by drawing each individual piece on my iPad to form a SVG file. After I’ve created the file I cut each piece out of Birch Wood using my at home laser cutter. Once the pieces are cut, I hand paint and stain them. This collection took me 2 full months to complete. The Anastasia Collection symbolizes rebirth and new beginnings.
