The Woodland Collection - Ombré Pyrite Gingko Leaf Pendants 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!
These gingko leaves are cut by hand from 24 gauge sterling silver sheet. Each leaf is hammered with a texturing hammer. A tiny pyrite cab is set in the center in a sterling bezel, and the leaf has been blackened and partially sanded to create an ombré effect. Leaf is 5/8" wide x 1/2" tall. Hangs from an 18" oxidized sterling silver beaded chain, & finished with a lobster clasp closure. All silver has been oxidized in liver of sulphur, burnished & hardened in a tumbler, & then polished by hand to bring out shine & the highlights of the silver.
