This eco-friendly necklace was crafted using real walnut leaves picked right from my garden. A thin layer of reclaimed. 999 fine silver is made into a paste and painted onto each leaf, then left to dry completely before adding the next coat.This process is repeated until there is enough silver to give the pieces a substantial thickness, usually not less than 30 coats. The leaves are then fired in a kiln where the silver paste fuses together creating a solid fine silver, while the actual leaves burns away, but not before creating their one of a kind impressions. A patina is added to highlight the veins. Finally the silver leaves are then attached to a sterling silver chain, clasp, & extender and all the links a fused closed for added strength. The exact necklace pictured is the one you will receive.
Necklace length: 16in long (40.6cm) plus a 3in (7.6cm) extender. Approximate bib size: 4in (10.1cm) wide by 1 1/4in (3.2cm) high. Feel free to browse my other botanical pieces.
