Fine Silver Rounded Colorado Leaf Necklace
This nature-inspired fine silver necklace originated from a leaf I found on a hike while in Boulder, Colorado. It had such a beautiful shape, reminiscent of an aspen leaf, but I don’t think it is one. It made it home from my trip in the back of my phone case and is now immortalized in pure silver. It houses a CZ garnet and is finished on a sterling silver-plated chain with a beautiful leaf and flower toggle that measures about 24″
This would make a great gift for any nature lover or avid gardener.
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.
