Lotta Jansdotter, a Swede who now lives in New York, recently launched a line of apparel. I adore this Ruta Blue top. But it’s the necklace that has me scouring the internet for “björknäver halsband.” Lotta found the woven birch bark necklace at a flea market in Sweden. Apparently weaving the bark of birch trees into pretty things is a traditional technique that totally eluded me for the five years I lived there. Now I’m pining for this piece of jewelry (pun intended!). If anyone knows where I can find one, please let me know. I don’t have a Swedish grandmother who can show me how to make one myself!
