Young Maple Leaf Necklace
A young Maple leaf was harvested from the grounds of my studio in the woods for this necklace. Handsawn from sterling silver, soldered veins and formed with chasing tools and an anvil. It hangs from a handcrafted branch adorned with turquoise. The leaf and the branch move on their balled rivet connections. Paired with a sterling silver marquis chain with handmade clasp. 17.5" L . Oxidized.
Leaf measures: 1 5/8"L x 1"W. Branch is 2" across.
**A huge thank you goes out to the incredibly talented master silversmith, Nicole Ringgold. She shares her wealth of knowledge and experience with metalsmiths across the globe. Her talent, imagination and determination knows no bounds. I learned the techniques for this leaf from her in her studio in the majestic mountains of WA.
