Mystic Holly Leaves Necklace

Mystic Holly Leaves Necklace

330.00

A fairy tale-esque real leaf necklace that features glittering white moonstone and holly leaves that looks like it should be worn by a mythical snow queen in a frozen forest.

The nature-inspired holly leaf necklace is fashioned from two real holly leaves fossilized in solid sterling silver whereby the leaves image and texture are frozen in time.  The leaves are set on either end of hand-wrought curling sterling silver vines and a glowing rainbow moonstone is set among the vines between the leaves.  

This real holly leaf necklace suspends from a simple 18-inch sterling silver cable chain by two natural white freshwater pearls.

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.
