Elven Holly Real Leaf Necklace

Elven Holly Real Leaf Necklace


A fairy tale-esque real holly leaf and opal necklace with a curved scrolled collar that an elven princess would wear proudly.  

This delicate elven-inspired real holly leaf necklace is fashioned from a real holly leaf fossilized in solid sterling silver that preserves the leaf's image and texture. The holly leaf is set with a small natural Australian opal set in a simple bezel setting and sits upon a curved collar of hand-wrought sterling silver scrollwork.  The scrollwork attaches to a chain of natural white freshwater seed pearls which extend partway up the necklace where it then connects to an adjustable 19-inch decorative and slightly oxidized sterling silver chain with a lobster claw closure.

How it's made:  Years ago, I figured out a way to melt down my scrap silver and "fossilize" real twigs and leaves by coating them with multiple thin layers of molten sterling silver until enough layers build up to make the piece durable. They are then placed in a kiln and heated evenly so all the layers of silver fuse together, entirely burning away the leaf or twig but leaving their organic image and texture behind.  Each leaf and twig are unique, and each design captures the elegance and beauty of nature.
