Regular price $215.00 Sale

This large silver maple leaf pendant symbolizes nature in all its glory. It began with a maple leaf that I actually caught as it was falling off the tree (see process below). It holds a malachite cabochon and accented with complimentary green shell on it's chain. It is finished with green shell and sterling silver plated chain that measures about 20". You will get compliments on this one for sure!

LEAF PROCESS:
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 twelve layers of precious metal clay slip onto the leaf. I then fire it in the kiln to produce this gorgeous, nature-inspired fine silver (.999) leaf that can be cherished forever.
