Considered a living fossil, the ginkgo tree has no known living relatives and has endured for millions of years with little change - becoming a symbol of strength, hope and peace. This unique pair of nature inspired sterling silver ginkgo earrings began as ginkgo leaves I found on a walk. A great piece of nature jewelry for that nature lover.

LEAF PROCESS: 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.
