Majestic Oak Leaf Necklace

350.00

Nature becomes wearable art in this stunning oak leaf necklace that looks like it was taken straight out of an enchanted forest. 

This organic botanical necklace is fashioned from a real oak leaf fossilized in solid sterling silver whereby the oak leaf's image and texture are frozen in time.  It is adorned with hand-wrought sterling silver scrollwork and set with a large mystical abalone cabochon. 

The oak leaf necklace is slightly oxidized and polished to showcase its organic detail and suspends from a decorative textured and oxidized 18-inch sterling silver chain by tiny hematite stones and sterling silver granulation beads.

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.
