Shimmering Holly Real Leaf Necklace

Shimmering Holly Real Leaf Necklace

250.00

A whimsical holly leaf necklace that delights the senses with its bright, happy colors of blue and yellow.

This real holly leaf necklace is fashioned from a real holly leaf fossilized in solid sterling silver that preserves the leaf's image and texture.  The holly leaf is set with a natural golden citrine and a Swiss blue topaz gemstone, both set in simple bezel settings amid hand-wrought sterling silver scrollwork.  

Holly leaf necklace is oxidized to showcase the detailed texture of the leaf and suspends from a slightly oxidized, decorative 18-inch sterling silver 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.
