Royal Ginkgo Leaf Necklace

265.00

This ornate real ginkgo leaf necklace is a statement piece that I can envision being worn by a majestic woodland queen who watches over her wild forest with a loving hand.

This botanical ginkgo leaf necklace is fashioned from a real ginkgo leaf fossilized in solid sterling silver whereby the leaf's image and texture are frozen in time. It is adorned with a glowing mystical looking oval-shaped abalone cabochon set amid hand-wrought sterling silver scrollwork, which also extends to the outer sides of the leaf. 

The ginkgo leaf necklace is oxidized to showcase its exquisite detail and suspends from an 18-inch oxidized sterling silver diamond-shaped chain by two natural moss agate stones.

The Process of Making Real Leaves and Twigs Into Jewelry
Many years ago, I figured out a way to melt down my scrap silver and "fossilize" real twigs and leaves.  They are coated with multiple layers of molten sterling silver, where each layer is allowed to cool and harden until enough layers have built up making the piece durable.  The pieces are then placed in a kiln and heated evenly so the layers of silver fuse together, burning away the leaf or twig entirely but leaving their organic image and texture behind.   No two are ever exactly alike, but each design captures the elegance and beauty of nature.
