Royal Ginkgo Real Leaf Necklace

Royal Ginkgo Real Leaf Necklace

265.00

This ornate real ginkgo leaf necklace is a statement piece that will tun heads and could be worn by a fantastical woodland queen who watches over her wild forest with a loving hand.

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

This real 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.

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.
