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.
