Silver Fern Leaf Necklace with Malachite Gemstone
Inspired by Mother Nature, this fine silver fern leaf began as a treasure found on one of my walks in the woods. It holds a beautiful green malachite gemstone and hangs on a double link sterling silver-plated chain that is versatile and can be worn with the fern hanging straight down or horizontally.

• Sterling Silver Plated Oxidized Chain measures about 18"
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.
