Fallen Ginkgo Real Leaf Necklace

Fallen Ginkgo Real Leaf Necklace


Nature becomes wearable art with this majestic ginkgo leaf lying among fallen twigs and colorful stones of the forest floor in this nature-inspired necklace. 

This ginkgo leaf necklace is fashioned from a real ginkgo leaf fossilized in solid sterling silver that preserves the ginkgo leaf's image and texture.  The ginkgo leaf is set on two hand-wrought twigs that are set with an oval abalone cabochon and a round amethyst gemstone set in simple bezel settings.  

Both the ginkgo leaf and twigs are oxidized to show their detail and texture and necklace suspends from a simple 18-inch sterling silver cable chain. 

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.
