Forest Guardian Double Hibiscus Real Leaf Necklace

Forest Guardian Double Hibiscus Real Leaf Necklace


A one of a kind double real leaf necklace that will act as your personal talisman with its watchful abalone eye.

This organic leaf necklace is fashioned from a real hibiscus leaf that grew as two attached leaves and is fossilized in solid sterling silver that preserves the leaf's image and texture.  The double hibiscus leaves are set with a natural abalone "eye" cabochon in a serrated bezel setting amid handmade sterling silver scrollwork and granulation beads. 

This real double hibiscus leaf necklace is oxidized to show the leaf's texture and suspends from a slightly oxidized decorative 18-inch sterling silver chain by two more granulation beads.

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.
