A beautiful recycled silver leaf necklace, made using a real rose leaf and lampwork glass rose (the June birthflower). The leaf is handpicked and dried, painted with eco friendly fine silver clay, fired and soldered. The glass bead is on a handmade head pin. Once assembled 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 measures 3.36 cm (1.33") in length and 1.34 cm (0.53") and the glass rose measures 2.5 cm (1") in length and 1.5 cm (0.59") at the widest point. It comes with a recycled 18" sterling silver hammered trace chain. If you would prefer a different chain style or length please don't hesitate to Contact Us.
This item is presented in a recycled gift box with an anti-tarnish tab, and is posted safely in recyclable wrapping by free special delivery. It would make the perfect gift for those who love leaf jewellery or rose jewellery.
