Muir Woods

Just a few miles north of the bustle and cosmopolitan life of San Francisco rests the constant and largely untouched world of Muir Woods. Here, colors are seem more vivid and trees soar higher than humanly imagined. The Muir Woods collection evokes the serenity and timelessness of this prehistoric redwood forest. Earrings, bracelets, necklaces, pendants and rings are both delicate and exotic. The nature-inspired, handcrafted textures allow the jewelry to be gorgeously warped like the bark of a tree or the rush of river water. Burnt umber, red bronze, smoky lavender, iridescent greens and turquoise hues complete the collection.


When creating new jewelry designs, John S. Brana loves to venture into the great outdoors, looking for natural forms to spark his creativity. The John S. Brana Muir Woods Jewelry Collection is a line that perfectly exemplifies the natural, organic quality of his work and is filled with pieces that are sure to have you looking sophisticated and stylish.


Inspired by the Majesty of Muir Woods


Muir Woods is a National Park located about 12 miles north of the city of San Francisco, where John S. Brana lives. The forest is home to some of the oldest surviving Coast Redwood trees in California. The trees tower high above the park's trails, and millions of tourists visit the site every year to admire the beauty of the redwoods. The John S. Brana Muir Woods Collection was inspired by the beautiful images that one is treated to on a walk through Muir Woods and is a great way to bring a touch of nature's beauty to your jewelry box.


Natural Details Waiting to Be Discovered


At Muir Woods, there are so many beautiful things waiting to be discovered, and the Muir Woods Collection similarly boasts a group of pieces that exude natural beauty and are truly remarkable finds. Because the trees of the forest command so much attention, many of the pieces in the collection evoke their beauty, bringing textures of bark and the shapes of leaves and twigs to life. You'll also find pieces that are inspired by the flowers that grow wildly along the trails and lily pads that can be found floating in hidden watering holes. To make all of the natural-inspired pieces in the John S. Brana Handmade Jewelry Muir Woods as realistic as possible, John S. Brana employs a number of handcrafting techniques, making each ring, pair of earrings and bracelet in the range truly exquisite.
