Lover's Fork Branch Necklace

Lover's Fork Branch Necklace

220.00

I call this design "Lover's Fork" because like a tree whose branches stem from a central trunk, two people who are truly in love share a special central connection, yet each still must also follow their own path. 

This natural branch necklace is fossilized in sterling silver, retaining its organic texture, and is oxidized and set with three round garnet stones at each of its three ends.   Pendant is suspended from a simple 18 inch sterling silver 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.
