Founded by "a hobby gone wild" birch is a one-woman project based out of Turlock in Central California. As the grand-daughter of a demolition worker, the daughter of an ex-construction worker, and part of a family lavender farm, she has constantly been challenged to use what is readily available. Rooted in an agriculture based location and background, what many would consider scrap is a viewed as a blank canvas. Many of birches products are produced via re-purposed steel, brass and copper but also newly minted gold and silver. Birch is about bringing back the lost art form of hand-crafted products within the world of cookie-cutter mass production. Each piece is made to be loved like a gem; a unique item all of its own. With an affinity for the unique and unusual, birch enjoys creating custom pieces for the everyday woman.
