A beautiful recycled silver leaf necklace, made using a real rose leaf (the June birthflower). The leaf is handpicked and dried, painted with eco friendly fine silver clay, fired and soldered to a handmade bail, and then the whole item is polished by hand to leave a silver shine. It is finally finished with a protective coating to prevent tarnish.
These leaves are picked from a wild field rose plant (rosa arvensis); one of two wild rose species in Britain (the other being dog rose - rosa canina). It is a rambling rose and provides nectar for many insects including bees, moths and butterflies. Roses are said to symbolise spiritual wisdom.
This silver leaf pendant measures 2.6 cm (1.02") in length and 1.9 cm (0.75") at the widest point. It comes with a recycled 18" sterling silver hammered oval link chain. If you would prefer a different chain length please don't hesitate to Contact Us.
Every item is presented in a recycled pillow box, and delivered in a recycled and recyclable postage box. If you would like to add a gift box to your order it would make the perfect gift for those who love leaf jewellery.
