A beautiful recycled silver leaf necklace, made using a real ivy leaf and red enamel. 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.
There are 12-15 species of ivy (Hedera helix agg) and they differ in the leaf shape, size and structure. Thick ivy vines that grow up trees are often used as a hideaway for roosting bats in the summer. A more surprising fact is that some species of ivy are used as an extract for medicinal purposes!
This silver leaf pendant is small and measures 1.2 cm (0.47") in length and 1.4 cm (0.55") at the widest point. It comes with an 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 with an anti-tarnish tab, and is posted safely in recyclable wrapping. If you would like to add a giftbox to your order it would make the perfect gift for those who love leaf jewellery or red jewellery.
