The Woodland Collection - Oak Leaf & Acorn Necklace in Sterling Silver
New for Autumn 2020, the Woodland collection features handcrafted one-of-a-kind sterling silver jewelry inspired by terrariums & the forest floor. You'll find clear domed resin cabochons filled with moss bark & lichen, cast sterling silver twigs, leaves, toadstools, seeds & pinecones. Acorns & gingko leaves are sawed and stamped by hand. There are golden brass fallen leaves, semiprecious gemstones, insect wings & more!
This pendant was created with a back layer of 21 gauge sterling silver sheet & soldered to a 24 gauge top layer. The top layer was stenciled & cut out, then hammered & textured to create an acorn and an oak leaf. A round sunstone cabochon is offset in a smooth bezel. This pendant measures 1 3/4" wide & 7/8" tall. Suspended from an 18" sterling silver rolo chain, with a faceted 12mm mookaite bead hung asymmetrically. Finished with a lobster clasp closure. The entire piece is oxidized in liver of sulphur, burnished & hardened in a tumbler, & then polished by hand to bring out shine & the highlights of the silver.
