Spring's Awakening Real Leaf and Twig Necklace

Spring's Awakening Real Leaf and Twig Necklace

215.00

A lyrical twig and leaf necklace that emulates the small, simple look of plants budding to life in the early spring season.

This real leaf and twig necklace is fashioned from a real leaf fossilized in solid sterling silver that preserves the leaf's image and texture.  A round natural peridot gemstone, set in a simple bezel setting, adorns the leaf that is set on hand-wrought sterling silver budding twigs. 

This real leaf and twig necklace is oxidized to showcase its detail and 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.
