Oxidised field maple leaf necklace - Arborea Jewellery

Oxidised field maple leaf necklace

Regular price £45.00 Sale

A beautiful recycled silver leaf necklace, made using a real field maple leaf. The leaf is handpicked and dried, painted with eco friendly fine silver metal clay, fired and soldered to a handmade bail of recycled silver, and then the whole item is oxidised to give the beautiful colour, the back is polished to give the wonderful silver contrast. It is finally finished with a protective coating to prevent tarnish.

This silver leaf pendant measures 3 cm (1.18") in length and 2.6 cm (1.02") 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.

Field maple (Acer campestre) is a common woodland and hedgerow tree, the only native species of maple in Britain. As with all maple trees, its sap can be used to make syrup. It has winged fruits like the sycamore (also an Acer) and beautiful autumn foliage, which I have represented by oxidising it to give a beautiful golden brown colour.

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 oak.
