Nature's creations.

People buying holiday ornaments made from the preserved leaves of the fallen Wye Oak will benefit AMERICAN FORESTS. That's because each natural design sold during the holiday season will plant a tree in an AMERICAN FORESTS' Global ReLeaf Forest.

"Nature's Creations is pleased to make available Wye Oak leaf ornaments created using the natural leaves from the fallen 'Gentle Giant'" said Dennis Ray, managing designer.

The leaves, embellished with a burgundy silk bow, join variously sized pins crafted by Nature's Creations from the Wye Oak, which was the nation's largest white oak until it toppled in a June 2002 storm. The purchase of these Historic Leaf pins as well as other Natural Leaves and Commemorative Pins also will result in the planting of a Global ReLeaf tree.

Founded in 1976, Nature's Creations (www.naturescreations.com) designs, handcrafts, and distributes unique jewelry and art from leaves and other natural items. Through a process called artistic electroforming the company captures the leaves in copper, then finishes the design with copper patinas or precious metals. Various sized Wye Oak leaf designs are available at www.wye-oak.com. Other examples of Nature's Creations' natural leaf designs are available on its website.
