Fine Silver Fern Leaf Necklace with Emerald Accent
Inspired by Mother Nature, this fine silver, hand painted fern leaf was found on one of my walks in the woods. It holds a beautiful CZ emerald gemstone and hangs on an adjustable leather cord that can be worn longer or more like a choker. It would make a great gift for that nature lover in your life. Finished on an 18" ruthenium-plated chain.
Organic objects such as leaves often make the most unique and stunning patterns. Intricate and realistic detailing of leaves can only be achieved through a process that is very much a labor of love. After finding a gorgeous leaf that has fallen off the tree, I bring it home and paint about fifteen layers of precious metal clay slip onto the leaf. I then fire it in the kiln to produce a gorgeous, nature-inspired fine silver (.999) leaf that can be cherished forever.
