Summer Sunrise Curly Vine Leaf Necklace

Summer Sunrise Curly Vine Leaf Necklace


A lyrical twig and leaf necklace that reflects the pale shimmer of early morning light that makes this curled leafy vine necklace come to life.  

This leaf and vine necklace is fashioned from a real leaf fossilized in solid sterling silver whereby the leaf's image and texture are frozen in time.  A round piece of natural sparkling labradorite adorns the leaf that is set on hand-wrought sterling silver twigs wrapped with curly vines and accented with a natural pale pink freshwater pearl set in a simple bezel setting.

The leaf and twig necklace is oxidized to showcase its detail and suspends from a simple 18-inch sterling silver cable chain.

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.
